Once a busy sawmill town, it saw a brief resurgence through the 1940s when the Interstate Power and Light Company operated a plant here. Company employees occupied some of the few houses; others were falling into decay along with the abandoned mill. A vacant concrete power station is the only reminder that the power company was once here. The name is for the owner of the first sawmill.
