History:  

GONVICK, a city in Pine Lake Township, sections 9 and 10, was incorporated as a village on August 1, 1917. It developed when an area of the Red Lake Reservation opened for prospective homesteaders on May 15, 1896. One version of the name's origin is that when a group of local men got together to change the name from Wildwood, they decided to name it for the oldest man present, Martin Gonvick, born in 1863. The other story is that it was named for Emma Gonvick Monsrud, first wife of Peter Monsrud, who built a sawmill on land Emma homesteaded in 1896; she died in 1899; the sawmill closed in 1929. The post office, established in Beltrami County, began in 1900, with storekeeper Nels Fredensberg, postmaster. The Soo Line came in 1910 and in addition to local construction, businesses from Wildwood moved there.

WILDWOOD, a village that became part of Gonvick, having a sawmill and the homestead of P. A. Monsrud, built in 1896 on Lost River. The Pine Lake Creamery Association was organized in 1907; the blacksmith shop had a hall on the second floor for dances, meetings, and magic lantern shows. The community had a number of other businesses until its demise in 1910, when the Soo Line went through Gonvick and businesses moved up the hill to be closer to the railroad.
