History:  

TINTAH Township, organized in 1881, received its name from the Dakota, this being their common word meaning "a prairie." The city in sections 3 and 10 was incorporated as a village on May 2, 1889, and separated from the township on April 27, 1906. The Great Northern Railway built a station in section 3 in 1872. The village was organized in 1881 and platted on March 1, 1887. Charles Smith became postmaster when the post office opened in 1880.

Hennepin wrote of the Dakota as "the Nation of the prairies, who are called Tintonha," a name derived from tintah. Later it has been written Tintonwans, Titonwans, or Tetons, comprising many Siouan bands ranging over southern and western Minnesota and onward to the vast country of plains west of the Missouri.
