History:  

KENSINGTON, a city of Solem Township, sections 27 and 28, was platted by Hon. William D. Washburn in March 1887, was incorporated August 28, 1891, and separated from the township on October 1, 1906. This is the name of a western section of the city of London, and it is also borne by villages and townships in seven other states. The city had a station on the Soo Line, and its post office began in 1887. On the farm of Olof Ohman, about three miles northeast from this village, the famous Kensington runestone was found in November 1898.
