History:  

The city and county of Renville were named for Joseph Renville, a man of French and Dakota descent who had extensive knowledge of the wilderness and served as a guide for many expeditions. Renville founded Fort Renville and served as a captain during the War of 1812. He was a courier, interpreter, and founder of the Columbia Fur Company. He earned respect that cut across the racial and ethnic boundaries of that era.

The city of Renville was platted in 1878, when the railroad reached the area. It was incorporated in 1906. It has grown from a population of 250 in 1900 to about 1,200 residents today.

It is situated near the Minnesota River Valley in a fertile agricultural area known for its high productivity. Renville's economy, past and present, is based largely upon agribusiness. Renville serves as an agricultural service and distribution center for the surrounding area, and the city boasts the world's largest sugar beet processing plant.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

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.
