Here is a history page for Sartell

This area was first known as "The Third Rapids." Joseph B. Sartell, who arrived in 1854, was one of the first settlers. The official name was chosen in 1907 when the village was incorporated. There was some controversy over the naming of the community as several thought it should be named for themself. The name of "Sartell" was the ultimate winner due to his generous contributions to the area and his many family members who lived here.
