History & History Related Items

Jordan history:

Originally settled in 1896, Jordan officially became a town by Postal designation on July 11, 1899. The founder, Arthur Jordan, had hunted the area a great deal and in 1896 decided to bring his family here to settle along the banks of the Big Dry Creek. He soon took up trading with the local cattlemen and sheep men and it wasn't long until he had a store of sorts. Mail for the area residents began to find its way to the Jordan homestead and in 1899, Mr. Jordan and some of the local residents petitioned for a Post Office, with Arthur Jordan as the Postmaster. Since this Post Office had to have a name, they all agreed to call it "Jordan".
