as the sun sets on another dying town

Someone’s big dreams landed here, in the early 1900s. The town was platted, named then renamed, and there was a post office, a general store and hotel, a blacksmith shop, and a church or two, and even according to one account, a doctor – all there in hopes of benefiting from the future railroad. And then (you know how this goes), the railroad failed to materialize. The town hung on for a while but started to fade away.

The official population of the place is listed at 10.
