History

Organization of Willmont Township (note the double-L) was approved by the Nobles County Board on November 12, 1878. There was a general disagreement over the township name, one faction wishing to call it Willumet, and the other favoring Lamont. On November 22, 1878, a compromise was reached, and the township was formally named Willmont. When the town of Wilmont was established in 1899, one L was dropped to distinguish it from Willmont Township. Somewhere along the line, the township name was also changed to Wilmont (single-L). The reason for this change remains obscure.[3]
