The town site was established in 1877 south of Prairie Dog Creek, and it was moved in 1885 after the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad built its tracks on the north side of the Prairie Dog. The Lincoln Land Company platted the new town on June 15, 1885 and filed the plat on July 7, 1885.
The ethnicity of its settlers is unknown.
