History:  

OSLO, a city in sections 31 and 32 of Oak Park, bears the name of a large medieval city that occupied the site of Christiania, Norway. The old city was mostly burned in 1547 and again in 1624, and the new city was founded and named at the later date by Christian IV, king of Denmark and Norway. The city was incorporated on November 21, 1905, as Oslo; the name changed to Soo City in 1907 and back to Oslo in 1908; it was reincorporated on December 11, 1912, at which time it separated from the township. The post office began as Granville, Polk County, in 1881 and transferred to Oslo in 1905, associated with postmaster Andrew Hilden, who was born in Norway in 1853, moved to the United States in 1869 and to Granville, Polk County, in 1896, buying the one existing store and taking over the post office in 1897; he moved the store to the present Oslo in 1905 along with the post office; Hilden moved to Baudette in 1910, where he died in 1922.
