ⓘ Flensburg, Minnesota

After the Little Falls and Dakota Railroad was completed in 1882, there was a sidetrack to a mill at the site which later became Flensburg Village. The mill was called Flens Landing or Flynns Siding, with a depot and named for J. C. Flynn of Little Falls. Flynn was a teacher in the Little Falls schools in the late 1870s. Later, Flynn was an inspector for the Northern Pacific Railroad and a representative in the state legislature. He was also instrumental in developing the Little Falls & Dakota L.F.& D. railroad which ran through the future town of Flensburg.

Flensburg was platted in March 1890 by Olaf and Dagmar Searle. A post office began in 1892 and Flensburg was founded on 17th June 1911. Flensburg got its name in 1892, the local newspaper in little falls weekly tribune and little falls Gazette, began to use her name about that time. However, in this position on April 7, 1893 edition of the little falls transcript States, "the name of the station, Flynn, L. F. D. and was modified in Flensburg, entered into force on 1 April 1893." No further explanation was given.

One theory is that Flensburg might have been named after the German town of Flensburg, a seaport in Germany, in Schleswig-Holstein. However, many owners of land the names of the Polish in Culdrum 1892 book township plat of the area of Flensburg and it seems unlikely they would have chosen the name of a distant German naval port for the new city. Since "Burg" means fortress, it would be reasonable to name the new city Flynnsburg, or a shortened version of Flensburg, because the name "Flens landing" has also been used for the station Flynn.
