History

Christine was founded in 1883 as a Scandanavian settlement along the Milwaukee Railroad in Eagle Township.[5][1] A post office was established in 1884,[6] and the railroad built a depot in 1886.[5] There is some disagreement over how the town received its name, with most of the evidence suggesting it was named after Christina Nilsson, a well-known Swedish opera singer.[5] Others, though, suggest one of the town's early settlers, Knute Norby, wanted it named after him. The townspeople reportedly objected to his proposal, naming the town after his wife, Kristine.[1]

The village was an unincorporated part of Eagle Township for much of its history, until it officially incorporated as a city in 1976.[1][2]
