History:  

VERNON CENTER Township, settled in 1855, was at first named Montevideo by the county commissioners, April 6, 1858, but ten days later they renamed it Vernon, and on October 14 of the same year they changed this to the present name. A village had been platted here in June 1857 by proprietors who came from Mount Vernon, Ohio, two of whom, Col. Benjamin F. Smith and Benjamin McCracken, gave to it the name Vernon. The many villages and cities of the United States that bear this name, including the home of Washington in Virginia, received it primarily in honor of the distinguished English admiral Edward Vernon (1684-1757), the hero of the expeditions capturing Porto Bello in 1739 and attacking Cartagena in 1741. When the Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis and Omaha Railway was built through this township in 1879, the first name given to the station here was Edgewood, for its being at the edge of a grove, but it was renamed in 1885 for the township, although neither the township nor the station is quite centrally situated. The city of Vernon Center, in section 26, was incorporated as a village in 1899; the post office was established in 1858. Early businesses were flour mills, a sorghum factory, elevators, lumber dealers, a creamery, the Barnes Opera House and the Vernon Center Opera House, and several general stores.
