PLAT OF 1904 RECORDED TOWNSHIP

SPOONER REGISTER, 1904 --  Walker, Judd and Veazie probably first settled in this township -- SE1/4 Sec. 36, making a cash entry about 1869, on land now owned by Theodore Lauterbach.  The Ashland branch of the Omaha was built through the south part of section 35 and 36 in 1880.  There was a station for a short time at Veazie one and one-half miles east of the present site of Superior Jct.  In 1881 the Superior branch of the road was built through sections 35, 26, 23, 14, 11 and 2 and the station was located at Superior Jct.  The station at Lampson was located about two years ago.  With the exception of the railroad officials living at Superior Jct. there was no other settlement made in the twonship until about fifteen years ago when H. H. Meredith, now of Fairhaven, Washington, located on Sec. 6 on land now owned by Geo. Tozer.  A year later Mrs. Susan Berry located on the same section.  Nearly all the other settlers have located in the township within the last six years.

The Namekagon river flows thru the township from the southeast corner to the northwest corner passing thru sections 36, 35, 34, 27, 28, 29, 20, 17, 18, 7 and 6.

A considerable portion of the east half of Sec. 23 is covered by Whalen Lake.  The township is quite level or gently rolling.  If a line is drawn from the southeast to the northwest corners of the township nearly all the land to the north of the line is clay soil and that to the south is sandy especially along the Namekagon.

Less than two years ago a station was located at Lampson and a lively business is carried on under the direction of F. L. Lampson.

Superior Junction (Mills P. O.) is a rapidly growing little village.  Not much business was done here until about two years ago when T. H. Fielding and W. R. Campbell located here.  Mr. Campbell has a large farm and deals largely in real estate.  Mr. Fielding conducts a large general store on a cash basis.  He deals in about everything the farmer has to sell.  During the past year he has had a large trade in railroad ties, pulp and cordwood.  This is one of the few places in which the name of the railroad station differs from that of the postoffice (Mills -- later to be known as Trego).  It would seem that the citizens, the railroad company, and the post office department ought to get together and decide upon one name for both. Several of the new business houses in the village and some of the prominent farmers in the township should be mentioned in this connection but time and space will not permit.

MORE "TOWN OF MILLS" NEWS

SPOONER REGISTER, 22 January 1904 -- An effort is being made to have the county board at its next meeting set off sections one and two in 39 -11 and all of 40 -12, creating it into a new town under the name of Mills.  This would give a voting place at the Junction.

SPOONER REGISTER, 12 February 1904 -- The new town of Mills is going to be a big help to us.  It will give us a voting precinct, a representative on the county board, and a chance to manage our own affairs in our own way.  The new town consists of Sections 1 - 12 in Township 39 - 11 and Section 13 - 16, 21 - 28, and 33 - 36 in Township 40 - 12.
