History & History Related Items

Mount Vernon history: David W. Jenkins, an early settler, owned a prize black stallion named Mt. Vernon. Both the town and the rocky eminence just to the north were named for the horse, and the animal was stabled in a small stone building constructed especially for him as protection against indians and thieves. During the Indian War of 1878, neighbors drowded into the stout little fortress along with the horse. In 1971, the building was still standing, unfazed by ninety years, just north of U.S. 26 about one and one half miles east of Mount Vernon. The post office was established May 14, 1877 with William J. Gray as postmaster.
