MONTICELLO Township, settled in 1852, organized May 11, 1858, and its city in sections 2, 11, and 12, platted in the autumn of 1854 and incorporated as a village on March 9, 1875, and reincorporated on April 30, 1906, when it separated from the township, were named by Thomas Creighton, one of the townsite proprietors, "from the 'Little Mountain,' a hill of modest proportions, about two miles from the village to the southeast. Previous to this in September [1854] Ashley C. Riggs and Moritzious Weissberger laid out the town of Moritzious." These were respectively the upper and lower parts of the present village of Monticello, being rivals during many years. "Monticello was first incorporated by an act of the Territorial Legislature approved March 1st, 1856. . . . Moritzious was also incorporated by an act of the State Legislature approved August 13th, 1858. . . . In after years, difficulties relating to titles led to some change in the corporation of Monticello, and on the 27th of April, 1861, the present organization was consummated" (History of the Upper Mississippi Valley, pp. 537-39). The post office was established in 1855, with D. B. Sutton as postmaster; it had a station of the Great Northern Railway. The home of Thomas Jefferson, in Virginia, three miles southeast of Charlottesville, bore this name, which thence has been given to townships, villages, and cities in 22 other states of the Union.
