History:  

ODIN Township, settled in 1868, organized in January 1872, and its city in Odin and Long Lake Townships, platted by Western Town Lot Company on March 29, 1899, incorporated on July 17, 1902, and separated from the township on March 10, 1903, bear the name of one of the chief gods in the ancient Norse mythology, called Woden by the Anglo-Saxons, for whom Wednesday (Woden's Day) was named. "He is the source of wisdom, and the patron of culture and of heroes." The post office, established in 1880, was first located two miles west of the present site and then one mile north, moving to the village in 1899; it was first known as Aasten's Town.
