Damar, one of the thriving towns of Rooks county, is a station on the Union Pacific R. R. in Kichland township, about 20 miles southwest of Stockton, the county seat. Concerning this town the Topeka State Journal of July 27, 1910, said "Five years ago there were less than half a dozen buildings on the Damar townsite. Today it has a thrifty population of about 300; it has two general stores, lumber yard, bank, hardware and implements, two elevators, drug store, furniture, and several smaller places. The deposits in the state bank reach close to the $50,000 mark."

Damar also has a money order postoffice with one rural route, express and telegraph offices, telephone connections, a Catholic church and convent, and it is the principal shipping point for the western part of the county.
