History:  

RAMSEY, first permanently settled in 1850, was organized in 1857, being then named Watertown; but in November 1858, this township was renamed in honor of Alexander Ramsey, the first governor of Minnesota Territory, 1849-53, and later the second governor of this state, 1850-63. The city was incorporated on November 12, 1974.
