History:  

UPSALA, a city in Elmdale Township, was named from the ancient city of Uppsala in Sweden, renowned for its university founded in 1477. It was incorporated as a village on January 2, 1917, and was first called Swedback's Settlement for the site where Charles Swedback built his store; as more settlers from Sweden arrived, the name was changed. Its post office began in 1883, was discontinued in 1911, and was reestablished in 1917.
