NICOLLET Township, named after the county, was first settled in the spring of 1854 and was organized May 11, 1858. An early village of this name, in section 17, was platted in 1857 but lasted only three years; "old" Nicollet was originally laid out in 1856 with a hotel, a sawmill, blacksmith shop, several buildings, and a stagecoach stop; the first post office, 1856-58, called Eureka, was a community in section 33 of 500 acres with a sawmill and moved to "old" Nicollet in 1857; the name was changed to Nicollet until April 1877; another post office was established as Nicollet Station in 1873 and combined with the first post office in 1878. The present city in sections 3 and 4 was incorporated November 17, 1881, and separated from the township on April 17, 1889; when the Winona and St. Peter Railroad was completed in 1870, the village (first called Nicollet Station) was laid out in section 3 along the tracks.
