History:  

GLENWOOD Township, on the southeast side of Lake Minnewaska, was named for the great glen or valley occupied by this lake and for the woods around its shores, contrasted with the prairies that form the far greater part of this county. The city of Glenwood, the county seat at the northeast end of the lake, in Glenwood and Minnewaska Townships, was first settled in 1856 and was first platted in part on September 26, 1866, by Kirk J. Kinney and Alfred W. Lathrop on land owned by Kinney, who named it for his home in New York; it was incorporated as a village on February 23, 1881, and as a city in 1912. The first building was the Kinney and Lathrop store, where Lathrop served as first postmaster when the post office was established in 1867; the Little Falls branch of the Northern Pacific Railroad came in 1882 and the Soo Line in 1886.
