Morrison County

FLENSBURG, a city in Culdrum, platted in March 1890 by Olaf and Dagmar Searle, was named for a seaport and fjord of Schleswig, at that time a province of Prussia, adjoining Denmark. The post office began in 1892; the city was incorporated as a village on June 17, 1911, and separated from the township on March 19, 1918. After the Little Falls and Dakota Railroad was completed in 1882, there was a sidetrack to a mill, called Flen's Landing or Flynn's Siding, with a depot and named for J. C. Flynn of Little Falls, a teacher in the Little Falls schools in the late 1870s; later he was an inspector for the Northern Pacific Railroad and a representative in the state legislature.
