Inscription.  An act of Congress, approved April 1878, gave the Utah & Northern Railroad Co. permission to build a narrow gauge line through Marsh Valley. It reached Oneida by July of 1878, where the first station was built. The town attained a population of about 2,000 as it was the forwarding point for the Soda Springs area until the Oregon Short Line came to McCammon in 1882. First post office in this valley was established, Alma Hobson, postmaster. Oneida changed to Arimo honoring an Indian chief.
