DASSEL Township, first settled in 1856, was organized in the fall of 1866 under the name of Swan Lake, from the Big Swan Lake in its northeast part, but it was renamed in 1871 for its railway village in sections 27 and 34, platted in 1869, which was incorporated February 28, 1878. The village and township thus commemorate Bernard Dassel, who in 1869 was secretary of the St. Paul and Pacific Railroad company. The site was platted in 1869 by Parker Simons, civil engineer for the St. Paul and Pacific Railroad; Simons liked the area and built the first frame building on the site; the early townsite had a general store, a sawmill, a hotel, and a number of small businesses; the post office was called Dassel Station, 1869-70, before changing to the present form.
