History: 

The town of Lismore was named after Lismore Township which, in turn, was named after a village in County Waterford, Ireland, noted for its beautiful castle. The name for Lismore Township was suggested by Father C. J. Knauf of Adrian.

Lismore owes its existence to the building of the Burlington Railroad through northeast Nobles County. The railroad established the towns of Reading and Wilmont in 1899. When the railroad reached present-day Lismore at 3:00 pm on Saturday, June 9, 1900, construction of the town immediately commenced.

The first business on site was the St. Croix Lumber company which sold its wares from a tent pitched next to a large pile of lumber hauled in from Wilmont. The first building in town was built by James Beacom and was used as a saloon. The second building in town was the O. B. Bratager store building. James Montgomery started a small grain elevator, and James Ramage opened a lumber yard and hardware store under the management of Arch Priest. The Bank of Lismore opened its doors on September 1, 1900, and was incorporated as the State Bank of Lismore three months later. A livery stable, a butcher shop, a restaurant, and a blacksmith shop were also opened in that first year. A school house, churches, several businesses, and many residences were constructed in 1901.

On December 6, 1901, the Lismore Leader was able to boast:  Lismore, for a place only a little over one year old, has made good and substantial growth... Lismore has one bank, two general merchants, one furniture store, two saloons, two pool rooms, two lumber yards, three elevators, four coal dealers, one hotel, one hardware store, two machinery firms, one blacksmith shop, one livery stable, one dray line, and one newspaper.

A census taken on April 10, 1902, showed a population of 186. The town was quickly incorporated, and its first municipal council meeting took place on June 17, 1902, with Emil Graf selected as president. Lismore's population in the 2000 census was 238.

From "An Illustrated History of Nobles County" by Arthur R. Rose, published 1908  

LISMORE Township, organized August 9, 1880, to which many Irish Catholic settlers came during that year, was named after a village of County Waterford in Ireland, noted for a fine baronial castle. The city of LISMORE in sections 1 and 12 was platted in the summer of 1900 and was incorporated May 31, 1902. The first business was the St. Croix Lumber Company, the first building was a saloon owned by James Beacom, and the second building was a general store owned by Ollis B. Bratager, first postmaster in 1900; the village had a station of the Cedar Rapids, Iowa Falls and Northwestern Railroad.

The Heartland Mutual Insurance Company HMIC was organized as a township mutual insurance company in 1996 by the merger of Delafield Mutual of Lakefield Minnesota (organized in 1888) and Wilmont Mutual of Lismore Minnesota (organized in 1895). This merger would allow HMIC to meet the needs of homeowners and farmowners in southern Minnesota. To further meet those needs, in January 2007 HMIC filed for and received a new Charter to operate as a statewide mutual insurance company. This new Charter allows HMIC to write additional perils and expand its operating territory from 14 counties to the entire State of Minnesota. HMIC is currently comprised of approximately 2,500 members.
