History & History Related Items

Hawley history:

Hawley was settled around 1890 when John R. Price came to stay. Others also soon arrived and in 1893, a school was begun. In 1903, a post office was opened in a nearby town, Zelo. Finally, the railroad came to town and Hawley officially came to be. The surveyor, Fletcher Scott, and many of the local citizens banded together to form the town. They named it Hawley after one of the other railroad officials, C.W. Hawley. Once the railroad was built in 1907, Hawley began to increase in size. Both the Zelo post office and their general store were moved to Hawley and before long, many other businesses also opened in town. In 1924, there was a major fire in the downtown that destroyed most of the area, but Hawley bounced back. Electricity arrived in 1926 further boosting the population. Oil was discovered nearby in the 1930's and by 1936 there were over 50 wells as well as a refinery producing in the area. Hawley was incorporated in 1970.
