In 1830, Russell Alvord and Daniel Richards, from the state of New York, obtained 40 acres 160.000 m 2 of land with the deed signed by U.S. President Andrew Jackson. In 1831, they opened an inn called the "Old Tavern". This served as a changing point on the stage coach line known as the New Hudson Station. A stage line post office was established in 1834. A U.S. government post office was established in June 1852. The community was platted by Russell Alvord in 1837.
