History:  

TURTLE RIVER Township likewise is named for its Turtle River Lake and for the river so named flowing through this lake, the most northern tributary of the Mississippi. A boom lumber village in the township began on land on Turtle River Lake purchased in 1899 by Fred DeSilver, who built a hotel and several stores; when the 1901 survey for the Minnesota and International Railway extension passed through the present site, merchants and residents removed their buildings to the 1898 homestead claim of Simon E. Bright. The post office operated 1899-1944, with Nels Otterstad as the first postmaster; he was also a land surveyor and timber cruiser. By 1910, two large fires had destroyed most buildings on the main street.
