History:  

RUSSELL, a city in section 19, Lyons, founded in May 1888, platted on January 19, 1889, and incorporated September 2, 1898, was named for Russell Spicer, son of a promoter of the building of this branch railway. The post office, begun in 1889, was first located in Ephraim Skyhawk's store, his family for some time having been the only residents; the store and an elevator and section house for the Willmar and Sioux Falls Railroad were built in 1888.
