History & History Related Items

Wall is located where the prairie meets the mountainous areas of the west. At the end of the prairie where the hills begin, there is "the Wall," a strip about nine miles long with spires, ridges and gullies. The town of Wall is named for this rugged wall. Wall also began, as many frontier towns, because of the railroad. A station was built here in 1907.
