Back to the west again. A rather dainty name for a coal mining town but it was the name chosen by a Logan M. Gullitt who platted it and named it after a sweetheart in a Delaware town of that name. That was in 1886. The Northern Pacific Railroad owned the property and needed the coal for its steam locomotives. The company set about hiring miners for the mines and the first train load consisted mostly of immigrants from Italy, Austria and Slavic countries.
