Established in 1851 by Dr. Dorsey S. Baker. The town moved to the present site in 1872 when the O&C Railroad reached this point. Alonzo F. Brown founded the new town. Fires destroyed the wooden buildings. The existing brick buildings were built in the 1890's. The economy then and now is mainly agricultural.
