In May, 1877, the Union Coal and Mining Company laid out, on lands owned by the company, the town of Flagler, in
the southwest quarter of section 2, township 75, range 19. Since then Booth's, Conwell's and Stevens' additions
have been made to the original plat. Flagler is a station on the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad, five
miles east of Knoxville, and according to Polk's Iowa Gazetteer had a population of 200 in 1914. It has a well
stocked general store, a postoffice, and express office, telephone connections, a public school employing three
teachers, a Methodist Episcopal Church, and ships considerable quantities of coal and farm products.
