    Hamline, Minnesota

    According to Warren Upham’s 1920 book, Minnesota Place Names: A Geographical Encyclopedia, the area in which Hamline University is sited was called the Hamline district. There was a Hamline post office from 1880 to 1891 near the university. Before 1873, the area was known as Johanna Crossing and, after Hamline acquired property for its campus, it was called College Centre, then College Place, and, finally, Hamline.
