History:  

VIKING Township, organized in 1884, was named by Rev. Hans P. Hansen, a Norwegian Lutheran pastor in Warren. This Scandinavian word, often translated as "a sea king," more correctly denoted any member of the early medieval pirate crews of Northmen who during several centuries ravaged the coasts of western and southern Europe. The city in section 26 was incorporated as a village April 12, 1921; the post office was established in 1890. The community developed with the railroad; there were three elevators and a number of small businesses.
