NEW CHICAGO
In 1867 Christopher Anderly opened a store in the northeast quarter of section 17, township 74, range 21, a little northeast of the present village of Bauer, and in a jocular spirit gave the place the name of Chicago. When the postoffice was established there a little later it was called New Chicago. No town was ever regularly laid out here, but several people bought lots and erected dwellings, and in time another store was established. After several years a decline set in, the postoffice was discontinued, and about all that remains of New Chicago is a pleasant memory.
