It has banking facilities, express and telegraph offices and a money order postoffice with one rural route. The population in 1910 was 275. The town was founded in 1873, by a stock company of which J. W. Shock was president. The land belonged to D. Kercher, who before the first store was built had a postoffice in his house. The store was opened by H. Gregg. The first physician was Dr. S. H. Blakely, the first drug store was opened by C. B. Channel, the first hardware store and the first blacksmith shop by P. A. Floodin. F. Case kept the first harness shop and Kopietz the first meat market. In 1875 J. W. Shock opened the first lumber yard. The first school was taught in 1867.
