In the 1800s the hamlet was located on Wilbur Road (Donaldson Road) known as Donaldson Mills due to the mills operated by the Donaldson family. There were three post offices through the years, two schools, a township hall, and a cemetery.
A historic sign was placed at the cemetery site in 2019. Visit the Virtual Tour at https://cmcabook2017.wixsite.com/nfhistorictour
