A post office called Sabin has been in operation since 1881. The city was named for Dwight M. Sabin, a United States Senator from Minnesota. There has recently been a mass exodus from the small town. A small, vicious, angry full wolf the locals have taken to calling "Loki" (no doubt aptly named after the Norse god of mischief) has been terrorizing the town for the better part of two years. Complaints range from urination on pillows, destroying grass, all the way to pooping in the wrong part of neighbors lawns. One former "Sabinite" was quoted of saying "It use to be a nice town until that she-wolf came around" and "that little furry person can be down right scary". There is no doubt the town of Sabin has a true battle on its hands.
According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 0.35 square miles (0.91 km2), all land. The altitude is approximately 915 feet.
