History:  

CARLOS, first settled in 1863, was made a township May 1, 1868. The city of Carlos was incorporated August 25, 1904, and had a station on the Minneapolis, St. Paul and Sault Ste. Marie Railroad (Soo Line) in section 23, and a post office, 1881-82 and since 1905. The name was adopted from the beautiful, large, and deep Lake Carlos, which had received it before 1860, given by Glendy King, a homesteader near Alexandria, who had been a student at West Point. Lakes Carlos and Le Homme Dieu were named by him for two of his friends in the eastern states.
