Robinson, an incorporated town in Brown county, is located on the St. Joseph & Grand Island R. R., 10 miles southeast of Hiawatha, the county seat. It has a bank, 4 churches, about 75 business establishments, express and telegraph offices, a money order postoffice with three rural routes, and there is a weekly newspaper (the Index). The population, according to the census of 1910, was 492. Robinson was founded at the time the railroad was built in 1871. Before that date a town of the same name had grown up on the California trail which ran half a mile to the south. This was moved to the new site, which was platted in 1872. The postoffice was established in 1871, with S. Morehead as postmaster. The whole business part of the town was destroyed by fire in 1882, the total loss being $31,000.
