History:  

THIEF RIVER FALLS, a city in North and Rocksbury Township and the county seat, was platted as a village in 1887 and was incorporated as a city September 15, 1896. A post office named Thief River operated February-May 1884 while still part of Polk County and was then reestablished in 1891 when the Rockstad post office moved here. The city was a former terminus for the Great Northern and Soo Line railroads. The Red Lake River within the city area originally flowed in rapids over boulders. Above the present dam, which has a head of 15 feet, supplying valuable water power, this river is navigable by steamboats to Red Lake. On the northeast side of the city it receives Thief River, which is translated from the Ojibwe name, noted by Rev. Joseph A. Gilfillan as "Kimod akiwi zibi, the Stolen Land river or Thieving Land river." The map of Maj. Stephen H. Long's expedition, in 1823, and Nicollet's map, published in 1843, give the present name.
