Summary
"Have you heard of Bradford Falls or Zillo? Ermine Falls and Upper Big Woods? Elk Creek was a previous name for Alta Vista, just as Greenwood and Woodbridge were early names for Nashua. Billtown was a nickname for Williamstown, but have you heard of Up the Creek? Some name modifications were simple spelling changes such as Fredericksburgh for Fredericksburg or Dayton Centre for Dayton Center. Railroad stops were Crane Creek Station, Ionia Station and Chickasaw Station. Did you know New Hampton was first called Chickasaw Center? Twenty-nine of the places were post offices. If you have any connection to Chickasaw County, you will want to read this book! We bet you will learn something you didn't know."--Back cover
