This town was set off from the town of Halsey in 1902 and organized as a separate town in the spring of 1903, electing John C. Searing as its first chairman.

The town consists of township 30, range 3 east, excepting the east one-half of east one-half of section 36, which remained attached to the village of Athens. The population in this town is purely a farming community.

One cheese factory has been built and is in operation, conducted on the co-operative plan. The majority of the farmers are of the German nationality, at least of German descent.

There are three school districts with a new modern schoolhouse in each district. No church exists yet in this town, as the bulk of the population are inhabiting the eastern part of the town and have joined the congregations in the nearby village of Athens.
