History:  

WILDER, a city in sections 6 and 7 of Delafield Township, was located and named in November 1871 in honor of Amherst Holcomb Wilder of St. Paul. He was born in Lewis, N.Y., July 7, 1828, and died in St. Paul, November 11, 1894. He came to Minnesota in 1859 and engaged in mercantile business and also in stage and steamboat transportation. Later he was interested in building numerous railways in Minnesota and adjoining states. By his will, and by the later wills of his widow and daughter, theAmherst H. Wilder Charity was founded, providing an endowment fund, of which the income is used to aid people in need. The building of this village was begun in 1885. It was platted by the Sioux City and St. Paul Railroad, December 7, 1886, and was incorporated March 28, 1899. For a few months, June-November 1871, the railroad station was called Timber Lake, then renamed; its post office was established in 1886. The community development was enhanced by the building in 1895 of the first Breck School as a farm college, the school moving to St. Paul in 1907.
