History & History Related Items

North Branch history:

North Branch incorporated as a township in 1861. In 1881, North branch incorporated as a township-size village of 36 square miles. But in 1901, a division occurred. An area of just one square mile removed itself from the original village and re-incorporated as North Branch. The rest of the township reverted back to a township and named itself Branch. Much later, in 1961, Branch became a village, surrounding, as earlier, the village of North Branch. Branch remained very rural with large lots and farms. North Branch became more urbanized with business and more densely situated homes. In 1974, both Branch and North Branch became cities. By the mid 1980's, the two cities began to explore unification and a study was done to further this idea. Though this initial proposal failed, there were continued requests for various services, annexations, detachments, etc. between the two cities. Finally, the Minnesota Municipal Board and a citizens' task force studied the mater and approved the consolidation. North Branch approved the move while the Branch city council did not. Even so, enough Branch residents petitioned for the consolidation that the matter was brought to a vote on 13 September 1994. At this time, a large majority voted for consolidation thus creating the new consolidated city of North Branch on 14 November 1994.
