Along with the big events, the plain every day homely happenings were woven into the warp and woof of this town's existence. National and international affairs were but over tones to the notes that composed the familiar melody of the life of the community. There were times during the nineties when the outside world became very close to this territorial town.
The town expanded, business developed, civic pride increased, "home seekers were more numerous than ever," public schools were built, church membership grew, and more leisure time brought a more extensive social life. This community acquired an individuality, a personality of its own through the working out of its problems.
