Mayetta, a village of Jackson county, is located on the Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific R. R. in Cedar township, about 8 miles south of Holton, the county seat. All the general lines of business are represented, including a bank, telegraph and express offices. Three rural mail routes emanate from the Mayetta postoffice. The population in 1910 was 350. The town was founded by Mrs. H. E. Lunger, who laid off the lots on Dec. 1, 1886, and sold 16 of them immediately. She gave the railroad company some 10 acres of land on condition that she be allowed to name the town. The name is a combination of Mary and Henrietta, which was the name of Mrs. Lunger's little daughter who died some time before.
