History:  

LEOTA Township was organized April 5, 1879. "The name was suggested by W. G. Barnard, one of the township's earliest settlers. It is the only township, village or physical feature in Nobles county named in honor of an Indian. Leota was an Indian maiden who figured in a story of Indian adventure" (history of this county by Rose, p. 102). The village in sections 5 and 8 grew out of a place of the same name in Orange County, Iowa, when a large number of Dutch immigrants moved from there to this site in the 1890s. The post office operated in 1879 with Horace N. Holbrook as postmaster, was reestablished in 1894 with James TenCate as postmaster in the store he owned with John and Nick DeBoer, discontinued in 1918, and was reestablished a third time in 1931. The townsite was surveyed by M. S. Smith for TenCate in 1902.
