History:  

WINGER Township was named by Norwegian settlers for a group of farms in the valley district called Gudbrandsdal in central Norway. The city of Winger in section 22 was platted by the Soo Line in 1905 and was incorporated as a village on January 5, 1921; it began with a general store built by Ingebret Messelt in 1885, where he also was first postmaster when the post office was established in 1886. The major part of the village site in 1889 was on Gullek Overland's land, which he sold in 1904 to the Minnesota Land and Trust Company, moving to Fertile, where he died in 1909.
