History:  

LOWRY, a city in section 24 of Ben Wade Township, platted in March 1887 and incorporated as a village on May 5, 1896, was named in honor of Thomas Lowry, who was born in Logan County, Ill., February 27, 1843, and died in Minneapolis, February 4, 1909. He was admitted to the bar in 1867 and in the same year came to Minnesota, settling in Minneapolis, where he practiced law and dealt in real estate; was president and principal stockowner of the company operating the street railways of Minneapolis and St. Paul, called the Twin City Rapid Transit Company. The post office began as Ben Wade in 1884, with John L. Johnson, postmaster; when the Soo Line came in 1887, the name was changed to Lowry, and John E. Benson, who had a store in the township for many years, moved it to Lowry, becoming the first postmaster.
