History:  

HALMA, a city in Norway Township, incorporated as a village on September 28, 1923. The first merchant was John Edwin Holm, born in Norway in 1872; he came with his family to the United States in 1875, lived in Renville County until 1895, when he moved to a farm near Halma, becoming first postmaster when the post office began as Lafgren in 1902 and continuing when the name changed to Halma in 1904; served as first treasurer of Norway Township and died March 15, 1955, at Hallock. The community developed when the Soo Line came through, many businesses moving there from Beaton.
