FINLAYSON Township, organized October 22, 1895, and the city in Finlayson and Pine Lake Townships were named in honor of David Finlayson, the former proprietor of a sawmill in this village. The city was incorporated as a village on August 24, 1905; it had a station of the Northern Pacific Railroad, a sawmill, a pickle factory, and two potato warehouses among its early businesses; the post office was established in 1887.
