History:  

ISANTI Township and its railway village were named, like the county, for the Dakota who inhabited this region when the first white explorers and traders came. The old Isanti was first established in sections 29 and 32, with a post office beginning 1865 in the home of Peter Norelius, a store and a hotel built in 1866 by George Nesbitt, and gristmills, a church, and a school. The village was moved in 1899 to the present site to be along the Great Northern Railway; incorporated as a village February 27, 1901.
