History & History Related Items

Akeley history:

The REd River LUmber Company was formed in 1893 by T. B. Walker and Healy C. Akeley. The city was basically developed by the two men. The settlement began about 1895. A sawmill was erected in 1902 which caused Akeley to grow much larger. Thomas Walker was going to build a mill in what would become Walker, but chose Akeley instead because of all the brothels and bars in the Walker area. Along with the new mill, a train depot was built in 1899. The population of Akeley grew from 2000 in 1907 to over 3500 in 1908.
