History:  

When the first settlers arrived, Native Americans were already making their home in the area where Reshanau, Baldwin, Rice and Marshan Lakes cluster. The Dakota Indians found this to be a land of plenty with an abundance of wild rice and small game. Today, several Indian burial grounds are located in the area.

White hunters and trappers began coming to this area from both Canada and the eastern states around 1850. Those who settled on the west side of the lake had names like Ramsden, Speiser and Wenzel. The east side of the lake was settled by families including the Cardinals, LaMottes, Houles and Dupres. Many of their descendants still live in the area today.

The first unit of local government in the area was the township of Centerville, organized August 11, 1857, encompassing an area of 36 square miles. The population of just under 300 people was organized into three loosely knit communities known as the "German settlement" west of the lakes, the "Swede settlement" south of the lakes, and the "French settlement" east of the lakes.

In the 1950s neighboring villages started annexing land away from Centerville Township. To protect the boundaries and allow for the financing of public improvements, the residents of the township voted to incorporate into a village.

Several names were suggested for the new village, and most contained the word "lakes". Although the origin of the word "Lino" is unknown, a Lino post office operated for about 10 years in the late 1800s. The town board decided to name the new village "Lino Lakes".

On May 11, 1955, the Village of Lino Lakes was incorporated. It covered the original Centerville Township, with the exception of the Village of Centerville, and was comprised of 21,000 acres of land and 1,800 citizens. In 1972, the State Legislature passed a law changing all Minnesota villages to cities, hence Lino Lakes' current status.
