HUTCHINSON Township took the name of its village, founded November 19, 1855, by the brothers Asa, Judson, and John Hutchinson, with others. These brothers were members of the famous family of many singers, born in Milford, N.H., who gave concerts of popular and patriotic songs throughout the United States after 1841 until the close of the Civil War. Asa Burnham Hutchinson, youngest of the brothers founding Hutchinson, where he afterward lived, was born March 14, 1823, and died at his home there November 25, 1884. Adoniram Judson Joseph Hutchinson, commemorated by the name of Judson Lake, now drained, about a mile north of this city, was born March 14, 1817, and died in Lynn, Mass., January 10, 1859. John Wallace Hutchinson, born January 4, 1821, resided many years in Lynn, Mass., and was author of the Story of the Hutchinsons (2 vols., 495 and 416 pp.), published in 1896.

Hutchinson, in Hutchinson and Hassan Valley Townships, was incorporated as a village February 9, 1881, and as a city in 1904; the post office began in 1856. The station in section 6 of Hassan Valley Township served several rail lines. The city has the second oldest park system in the United States.
