Le Loup, a village in the northeastern part of Franklin county, is located on the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe R. R. 7 miles northeast of Ottawa, the county seat. It was first named Ferguson, after Robert Ferguson, who owned the land upon which the town was founded. The first house was built in 1870 by J. A. Stonebraker and Mr. Ferguson. A postoffice was established in 1870. In the summer of 1879 a school house was built and the fall term was taught by Cyrus Jenkins. After the building of the railroad the name was changed to Le Loup. The town has several good stores, a money order postoffice with one rural route, telegraph and express facilities, and in 1910 had a population of 100.
