History:  

AUSTIN, the county seat, platted in the spring of 1856, incorporated as a village on March 6, 1868, and as a city on February 28, 1871, and February 28, 1876, and also Austin Township, organized in 1858, were named for Austin R. Nichols, their first settler. He was born in Lawrence County, N.Y., June 13, 1814; came to Minnesota in 1851 and took a land claim in 1853 on the site of this city; built a sawmill here in 1854 but sold this claim later in the same year; was a pioneer farmer subsequently at several other places in this state; removed to Minneapolis in 1865 and to the northwest shore of Mille Lacs in 1879, where Nichols post office, named in his honor, was established at his home, at the west edge of Aitkin County. He died there, almost a century old, April 5, 1914.

The post office began in 1855; the city had a station of the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific Railroad. The most well known of the many businesses in the city is George A. Hormel and Company, begun by Hormel on borrowed money in 1891; its national advertising, begun in 1910, made its products household names; Hormel, born in Ohio, died in 1946 in California at age 85
