This was the first town site in Graham County. It was platted on April 5, 1879 and was located 8 miles north and 4 miles west of Hill City. George Higginbotham, the founder of the town, was one of the merchants, and a post office was established on January 16, 1879. After Mr. Higginbotham died and Roscoe lost its bid for the county seat, the town soon vanished. The post office moved to Hill City on August 15, 1893.
The ethnicity of its settlers is unknown.
