History:  

ST. FRANCIS Township, settled in 1855 and organized in 1857, bears the name given by Father Louis Hennepin in 1680 to the Rum River. It was transferred by Jonathan Carver in 1766 to the Elk River and now is borne by the chief northern tributary of that river. The name is in commemoration of St. Francis of Assisi in Italy, who was born in 1181 or 1182 and died in 1226, founder of the Franciscan order, to which Hennepin belonged. St. Francis, a city incorporated on May 16, 1962, was first settled in 1855 on the Rum River, which furnished power to extensive roller mills. Businesses included flour mills, general stores, corn canning, and potato starch factories. A post office was established in 1857, former names being Old Jonathan, St. Jonathan (1857 in Ramsey County), and Otona.
