Of the Early Lri Story of the town we will give but a Brit of sketch As we desire to Deal More with present than the past. A user As we can learn the permanent settlement of Post township Wiite x 9ople was begun Early in 1841, Jobi Post wind Wab granted the commanding officer of it. A Crawford Wisconsin the privilege of occupying the  half Way House 7 built the United states troops i half Way Between it. Crawford wis and it. Atkinson Iowa. The document granted him the privilege of occupying said Bouse and stables and enlarging and improving on them Jit is pleasure. Ble was pro Lii Bibbd from keeping any spirituous lion crib in Hie Bouse on any pretence Sefl from trading with the indians except permit fusion of the Indian agent. The House was to kept open free Al charge to the Public and or. Post was to under the orders of the commanding officer of it. Crawford. This shanty or half Way House a it a was called consisted of a log building 16x20 feet and a stable also of logs somewhat larger. In the Winter of 1642, or Post and Richard Only built a More commodious building which afforded very comfortable accommodations for trav elders. The business was continued Here for two years when special permission of the commander of the military department it was removed to the present site of the town and at this time received the name of Postville. A recommendation dated january 19th, 1849, was prepared general a. C. Dodge then senator of Iowa that a Post office established at pal Ottille and that Joel Post appointed postmaster but or. Post never knew of his commission As he died before it was received january 24th, 1849 and Elijah Stevenson was the first postmaster. The Village plat at this time consisted of four blocks of eight lots each and was Laid out at the creasing of the military Road wit i the West line of Section 33, s p Hicks county Surveyor in 1853. The first regular store was opened in 1851 Josiah d. Heed & co. A Blacksmith shop was also opened in 1851 one Draper who was succeeded James Boll in 1855 who erected a Small Frame hotel. In 1856 the store of bed & co., was purchased Samuel j. It assail and the next year the commodious National hotel was erected mrs. . Soon after this the Mcgregor & Western railway was built through the North part of the town and s station erected the first trait Amy mpg aug. 8th, 1864. This gave a fresh impetus to business and one Hundred acres of land was Laid out in lots near the station mrs. Post John ii Bowler Joe Renolds and j. T. Stoneman. As the surrounding country became settled and improved in value the town also improved in a like ratio until in 1871 the assessed value of the total amount of property was $225,026.
