History:  

NEW LONDON Township, organized August 25, 1866, derived its name from the city in section 10, which was founded in 1865 by building a sawmill and was incorporated April 8, 1889. The name was chosen by Louis Larson, "from a similarity he saw with the location of New London, Wis., a prospering village of his old home county." The city was the temporary county seat, 1867-70; the post office began in Monongalia County in 1867; it had a station of the Great Northern Railway.
