ST. CHARLES Township, organized May 11, 1858, and its city, founded in 1854 and incorporated as a city February 28, 1870, were named "for St. Charles of Italy, who was born in 1538 and who became cardinal of Milan and secretary to Pope Pius IV" (The History of Winona County, 1913, p. 597). The city began in section 19 on land owned by the Lewis H. Springer family, first settlers who had come in 1853; the 1854 plat included 49 blocks and a public park. The first store was built in 1854 by Springer and became a public inn and the first post office when established in 1855. The Winona and St. Peter Railroad came in February 1864.
