Glen Elder, an incorporated town of Mitchell county, is located on the Solomon river and the Missouri Pacific R. R., in Glen Elder township, 12 miles west of Beloit, the county seat. It has 3 hotels, 2 grain elevators, 2 banks, a weekly newspaper, express and telegraph offices and an international money order postoffice with four rural routes. The population in 1910 was 565. The town was established in 1871 by Neve & Spencer, and called West Hampton. The Glen Elder postoffice, which was located half a mile north of this point, was moved and the town took the name of the postoffice. The promoters of the town built a large flour mill. The Mitchell County Key, a greenback paper, was started by George F. Daugerty, who printed it by hand with a roller.
