Carroll County Place Names, 1928-1945

Place name:Alderton
Description:"Alderton is one of the lost cities of Carroll County. The plat of the town was filed February 3, 1843 by J.T. Kelley and Paul Alder, who were the promoters of the enterprise. No permanent improvements were made on this site, which was subsequently washed into the Missouri River, the original town site, having been only two hundred rods from the river bank." The village was evidently named for Paul Alder. (Turner & Clark, Vol. I, p. 133)

Place name:Baum's Mill
Description:Baum's Mill was platted on Big Creek and for a number of years it was the only mill for miles around. At one time it was hoped that a town could be started at this point. On July 25, 1859, Joseph Smith made a survey and plat of the town of "Milford." Only a few of these lots were ever sold and with exception of the mill and one store, no other improvements were made. The townsite was then abandoned. There was no record of a man named Baum but there was surely one by that name from whom the mill took its name. (Turner-Clark, Vol. I, pp. 103-4)

Place name:Bloomfield
Description:The town of Bloomfield on Wakenda Creek was laid out in 1818. No trace remains of the town today. The low and wet situation of the town probably interfered with its growth. "There was not a family in the settlement but had its case of the ague. Thus, Wakenda bottom became depopulated and was generally considered unfit for the residence of man." The name was probably influenced by towns in the east. (Turner-Clark, Vol. I, pp. 100-1)

Place name:Bogard Mound
Description:Topographically, Leslie Township, has the highest hills in Carroll County, and Bogard's Mound is perhaps the highest of these points. The following apocryphal story is told concerning the name of this mound: "The incident is said to have taken place in a very early day, when a trapper by the name of Bogart or Bogard ascended to the summit of the mound to look over the country. He attempted to return by a different path from the one he followed to the summit, lost his way and for three days wandered about the mound unable to locate his camp. Tired and exhausted he fell asleep and on waking was enabled by the sun, which had come from behind the clouds, to locate the direction and thus found his way back to camp." The oldest inhabitants affirm that this story is true." (Turner-Clark, Vol. I, p. 139-40; Bert Moore; W.R. Painter; Robert Ray)

Description:"On September 7, 1857, William Hill, as president of the Carroll City Town Company, filed a plat for the proposed town. From the size of the town plat, it is evident that the promoters of the enterprise entertained very high aspirations and expected that Carroll City would be the metropolis of Carroll County. But nothing resulted from these aspirations and nothing remains to show where Carroll City was located, and at this time almost the entire quarter section is in the river."

Place name:Miami Station
Description:Miami Station was platted June 1, 1889, when the Wabash Railroad was built, 1868-1869. Travel and business from Saline, and Carroll County, seemed to indicate that Miami Station would be a good shipping point as Saline County had no railroad, but when the railroad was built through the county much of the trade was taken away. "Miami was the name of a noted Indian tribe; the meaning of the word is uncertain." (Turner-Clark, Vol. I, p. 93; Gannett, p. 207; Pace, pp. 136-7; TOP. MAP MARSHALL)

Place name:Miles Point
Description:On January 1, 1855, Jonathan Miles platted the town of Miles Point. It is evident that Mr. Miles had in mind in the founding of this town nothing more than to provide shipping facilities by river. For a long time after its founding it was known by the name of "Shanghai." Tradition says that this name of Shanghai was given to the town by reason of the importation of a large consignment of chickens of this creek. At first the name was written with the apostrophe but later the apostrophe was dropped.

The sudden death of two warriors without any apparent cause produced that impression." Great quantities of fish were found here, and deer, elk, buffalo and turkey were abundant on this stream. The Indians, thinking that a stream, where such great quantities of fish and game abound must be sacred, called it "God's River." The Wakenda Stream has been variously spelled "Wyconda," "Wakenda" and "Wakanda." (Wetmore, p. 260; Turner-Clark, Vol. I, p. 112, 132; Hodge, Vol. II, pp. 897-8)
