History:  

KENNEDY, a city on the border of Skane and Tegner Townships, was platted December 31, 1880, and incorporated as a village on June 15, 1899. It was named in honor of John Stewart Kennedy (1830-1909). From his former home in Scotland he came to America in 1856, settled in New York City, and was an iron merchant, banker, and railway director. He was a generous donor to many public charities and for educational and religious work. The Kennedy Land and Town Company, operating a bonanza farming project, convinced the St. Paul, Minneapolis and Manitoba Railroad, which had planned the site of a station two miles north, to build through the village, expanding the trade opportunities. Its post office began in 1881.
