History:  

FISHER Township, organized in 1876, and its city in sections 21 and 22 of the same name, received it from the earlier railway terminal village of Fisher's Landing, founded here in the fall of 1875 on the Red Lake River at its head of practicable steamboat navigation. It was first called Shirt-tail Bend because a shirt had once been tied to a pole to warn steamboats of the bend in the river and was renamed Fisher's Landing when the post office began in 1874, changing to the present name, Fisher, in 1882; it was incorporated as a village on February 9, 1881. During a few years, until the railway lines to Winnipeg and Grand Forks were completed, respectively in 1878 and 1879, Fisher's Landing surpassed Crookston in population and business. It closely adjoined the site of the present village, by which it was superseded, so that the old Landing village area "has changed to an unpretentious cow pasture." These names were adopted in honor of William H. Fisher, who was born in Hunterdon County, N.J., December 24, 1844; engaged in railroad business after 1864; settled in St. Paul in 1873 as attorney for the receiver of the St. Paul and Pacific Railroad, and as its assistant manager and superintendent; later was president and manager of the St. Paul and Duluth Railroad company, 1883-99; was vice-president and general manager of the Duluth and Winnipeg Railroad company, 1888-93.
