A town site named Fagan was located 1/2 mile west of the railroad bridge that crosses Wild Horse Creek 1 mile west of the present town of Bogue. Several buildings were nearly completed and the Wild Horse post office was moved there by June 17, 1887. However, the town site was never sold because Mr. Minor, the owner of Fagan, and the railroad could not agree on a price.
A Mr. Bogue bought some property 1 1/2 miles east of Fagan and founded the town of Bogue sometime in the early fall of 1888. It became a boom town with a bank, several different stores, a blacksmith shop and a depot on the L & CR rail line. All in all, 30 buildings had been erected or moved into Bogue by October.
The ethnicity of its settlers is unknown.
