Our Swiftest Road

‘Although the townsite had been laid out in 1882, it was not until the spring of the year following that the town contained inhabitants. Then Edward Willis and Charles billings erected a small store building of general merchandise and thus launched the first store in the town of Harrington.

‘All of their goods were freighted in from Sprague, twenty-five miles away; consequently the price of them remained rather high.’

-From a prize essay written by Miss Gertrude Adams
