History of Lino Lakes
Immigrants settled in the area around 1850. On the west portion of the lake were the Ramsden, Speiser and Wenzel families while on the east portion were the Cardinals, LaMottes, Houles and Dupres. Many of the first settler’s descendants are still living in Lino Lakes today. Organized into a township called Centerville on August 11, 1857 with a population of approximately 300 people. Three loosely knit communities are known in the area at the time namely the German settlement west of the lakes, the Swede settlement on the south and the French at the east portion. The origin of the word “Lino” was unknown, a town board meeting decided to rename it as Lino Lakes and on May 11, 1955, the Village of Lino Lakes got incorporated.
