Now these settlers, like most other old settlers, had a hard time to get along in those early days. S. B. McLain, Jake Harshman, Chas. Flynn, Sr., and £B. Scouten are among the earliest set tlers of this neighborhood. Eckelson was situated on the North ern Pacific railway, one half mile west of a l&rge lake which they called Lake Eckelson- This lake was about nine miles long and three-quarters of a mile wide. Eckelson was on a level prairie about .forty feet above the lake level. There was a ravine which led from the town down into the lake, thus carrying off all water from the street into the lake. This town Eckelson soon grew to be quite a size. It had one elevator, one store, one saloon, one section house, one water tank, one pump house, one school house and about five or six dwellings. The dry good...
