History[edit]

When the "Thirteen Towns", 13 townships in Polk County, Minnesota, were opened for settlement in 1883, settlers homesteaded the region. King Township, in which the village of McIntosh was located, was one of those 13 townships. The village was named for Angus John (A.J.) McIntosh, a man of Scottish descent, who immigrated from French Canada to the United States in 1870. However, he lived most of his years on the White Earth Indian Reservation north of Detroit Lakes, Minnesota. The only census in which he was residing in King Township was the Minnesota State Census in 1895.
