Maplehill, an incorporated city of the third class in Wabaunsee county, is located in Maplehill township on the Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific R. R., 17 miles northeast of Alma, the county seat. It has 2 banks, a hotel, all lines of mercantile establishments, telegraph and express offices, and a money order postoffice with two rural routes. The population according to the census of 1910 was 277. The town was founded about 1882 by George Fowler. In 1884 a store was opened by Brooks & Verits, who soon took Joseph N. Dolley, the present state bank commissioner, into the firm. Mr. Dolley has been closely connected with the development of the town. In 1885 a stone church was built and dedicated. The railroad was built in 1887, when the first store with the postoffice was moved to it and more stores built. The first house was moved from the Fowler ranch. There have been three disastrous fires, two in 1900 and one in 1901. The Business Men's Commercial club was organized in 1900.
