"History of St. Paul, Nebraska" from SHERMAN DAM DEDICATION, June 7, 8, 9, 1963

   Actual permanent settlement of the town of St, Paul and Howard Co. got underway in April of 1871, but the planning went back several years when N. J. & J. N. PAUL did surveying, First settlers were mainly settlers enticed by the Pauls from their home state of Ohio. The name selected for the new town was Athens (after Athens, Ohio) but since there was already a post office by that name in Nebraska, U. S. Senator Phineas HITCHCOCK suggested the town be named St. Paul for the founders.

   Howard Co. came into being by the Legislature in March 1871, with the consideration of St. Paul as county seat, First Co. Commissioners were: N. J. PAUL, John C. LEWIS & Luther H. NORTH

   One of the first acts was to build a bridge across the Middle Loup River so. of St, Paul by the help of troops of Co. C. 9th U.S. Inf. under Capt. MUNSON & Lt. AUGUR and by volunteer labor.
   Jacob PETERS, a brother-in-law of the Paul bros, became postmaster in 1871.
   E. S. CHADWICK opened first general store in 1871.
   School Dist, #1 was organized April 1872 with Miss Lizzie COOPER teacher.

   The ADVOCATE, first newspaper, est. by S. P. MOBLEY in Sept. 1873 and sold in 1874 to J. N. Paul, attorney.
