RENVILLE, a city in sections 5 and 8 of Emmet Township, platted in September 1878, and incorporated February 19, 1881, was named in honor of Joseph Renville, like this county. A post office with this name was established first in section 23 of Camp Township, operating 1862-63 and again 1873-80, before changing its name to Camp; a second post office was established at the present site as Renville Station, 1878-86, in reference to its Hastings and Dakota Railway station; it became Renville in 1886.
