History:  

ULEN Township was named in honor of Ole Ulen, its first settler. He was born in Norway, April 18, 1818, and died in Ulen village, January 19, 1891. He came to the United States in 1851 and to Minnesota in 1853, settling in Houston County; was a farmer there until 1867; and removed to this county in 1872. The city of Ulen, sections 27, 28, 33, and 34, was established on part of Ulen's homestead and was incorporated as a village on November 12, 1896. The post office was established in 1884, its name changing to Odneland in 1885 for Ole Odneland (Tallak Aaneland), postmaster and general store owner, although it was sometimes spelled Oneland and Onland. When the railroad came in 1886, Odneland's (Aaneland's) store was in the path of the rails, so it was moved to the east side of the tracks on the northwest corner of Regelstad's farm. Ole Asleson platted a townsite, and the name was changed to Ulen with Odneland remaining as postmaster until the post office was reorganized in 1887 and Ole Christian Melbye became postmaster in his grocery store; Melbye moved into the first house built in village limits in 1887.
