Pigeon Creek

-As transcribed from page 253


Pigeon Creek is the trading center of Pigeon Valley.  It is the only village of any importance in the county, aside from Ettrick, not supplied with railroad service.  The village was started in 1867 when Cyrus H. Hine purchased a tract of land from George Hale and erected a mill.  Shortly afterward Johnson & Olson put up a store.  Peter Ekern came here in 1875, purchased the mill and store, and established the varied activities of the place.  The estate now owns a large store, the creamery and the mill.  In addition to this there are a number of other stores.  There are likewise two churches.  Good roads extend in various directions, and the village is a most attractive little hamlet with many advantages.
