History:  

THOMSON Township received its name from the station and village of the St. Paul and Duluth and Northern Pacific Railroads, built in 1870. This village was the county seat from that date until 1886 and was incorporated as a village in 1891; it had a post office, 1870-1955. The name was given by officers of the former line in honor of David Thompson, the Canadian explorer and geographer, but it has been generally spelled as if for James Thomson (1700-1748), the Scottish poet, author of "The Seasons." Articles in the St. Paul newspapers of 1869 and 1870, however, spelled the name Thompson and stated it was named for J. Edgar Thompson, president of the Pennsylvania Central Railroad.
