History & History Related Items

A old town named Bloomington was located on the Old Wire Road and was a stop on the Overland Butterfield Stage line. When the railroad came in about a mile west of Bloomington in 1881, the residents were contemplating moving their little settlement to the railroad. About the same time, a tornado came through and basically made the decision for them. Several buildings and home were destroyed and what was left was quickly moved to the tracks. The relocated community was named Lowell.
