Facts for Renters
The town was originally recognized by the state in 1803. However, it wasn't incorporated until 1866.
In 1892, the city enforced a rule that a person with any goods or items had to pay for a license. A one-horse wagon cost $5 and a two-horse wagon cost $7.50. This rule helped create revenue from taxing the travelers and helped regulate traffic.
In 1894, all males over the age of 18 had to work on the roads. They had to provide their own tools and if they didn't come, they were fined 50 cents each day.
In 1917, the town enacted a business license ordinance. Today, the town still has an occupational tax on all businesses.
The city appointed a city physician each year until 1967.
The city also was quarantined for small pox and scarlet fever in the late 1800s.
