History:  

Sacred Heart, a city in section 7, was platted in October 1878, was incorporated on May 16, 1883, was separated from the township on March 20, 1906, and was reincorporated on June 6, 1908. Settlement began in the early 1860s with many settlers from Norway. Post offices were established at three different times: the first, 1867-71, was transferred to Vicksburg; the second operated 1875-77; and the third was established as Minnesota Crossing, 1868-77, with German P. Greene, postmaster, township clerk, and first teacher in the township. Greene came to the township in 1865, naming the site, then in section 8, Minnesota Crossing for the ford in the river below his log house; the house was the center of township activity until 1876; the post office then became Reishus, 1877-78, with Olaf S. Reishus, postmaster, who continued when the name changed to Sacred Heart; it had a station of the Hastings and Dakota Railway and Soo Line.
