EVHS has taken on an ambitious project to document every community that existed from the founding of the county. Communities are defined as hamlets, villages or incorporated towns/cities. Some locations have long disappeared and others still remain if only in signage, oral history and a few scant land marks. To qualify for inclusion a community must have had a central anchor that drew people together such as a post office, railroad stop, church, business/store or school. We continue to add sites and update others as information is revealed.
