Penokee, a post-village in Graham county, is located on the Union Pacific R. R. 8 miles west of Hill City, the county seat. It has telegraph and express offices, a general store and blacksmith shop, and the population according to the census of 1910 was 100. This town has lately enjoyed a considerable growth. During the summer of 1911 the railroad established a station agent at this point—the first for 18 years. In 1905 L. P. Millirons put in a hardware and implement store, and erected an elevator. A $15,000 lumber yard has recently been opened. The State Journal of July 22, 1911, says: "The original name of the town was Reford, and why the name of Penokee should have been substituted instead the people cannot recall. It was a trading point in the days of Reford, but no boom hit it and the buildings were moved away."
