Trego was more a stopping point for the railroad than a settlement since it only had a tank, well, and windmill. A post office was established in November of 1874 but it was moved to WaKeeney in February of 1878. After the WaKeeney post office closed in April of 1879, Trego’s post office reopened, only to be closed again four years later. Reopening in March of 1900, it closed a final time in December of that year.
According to Ruth Shearer, Trego was west of WaKeeney one mile.The ethnicity of its settlers remains unknown.
