Inscription. 2 miles southeast, this town was established in 1824 by William D. Carrington, who built there a hotel and distillery. At one time it had as many saloons as stores and was a noted gambling resort. It also had an excellent racetrack. It was virtually abandoned following the Civil War, which reduced most of its sporting patrons to penury.
