History:  

LAKE WILSON, a city in sections 12 and 13 of Chanarambie, platted in 1883 and incorporated as a village on July 12, 1900, was named by Jonathan E. Wilson, formerly of Chicago, Ill., who also named the nearby lake for himself. He owned at one time 17,000 acres of land in this vicinity (W. H. Stennett, Place Names of the Chicago and Northwestern and the Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis and Omaha Railways, 1908, p. 180). The village had a station of the Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis and Omaha Railroad, and the post office opened in 1883.
