Establishing the complete city of North Branch was no simple feat. In the 19th century, the North Branch Station was built, and the company encouraged pioneers to settle in the area. The company hoped that residents would farm the land and use the natural resources to produce goods for their railroad to ship. They bet on the right horse, as North Branch quickly became a prominent starch-production city. While the township of North Branch was incorporated in 1881, the city was split in 1901. When the township was incorporated and became the City of Branch, a select few opted to form their own independent village in the heart of town, to be called North Branch Village. Over the next 90 years, Branch attempted numerous times to annex the smaller village, especially because it was arguably the center of economic growth and therefore population. In 1994, the city and village finally united, officially becoming the North Branch that we know today.
