City of Treynor

Excerpts from the 1907 History of Pottawattamie County

The settlement of Silver Creek Township was not as rapid as those reached by railroad and it was not until 1905 that it had a town of its own when the town of Treynor was incorporated. Situated in the extreme northeast corner, it commanded a large part of the trade of not only Silver Creek, but also of Hardin, Keg Creek and Washington townships.

Among its early businesses were the Treynor State Bank, two general stores, one furniture and implement house, one drug store, one livery barn and two saloons. Its city officers in 1907 were: Mayor, Ferdinand Schoening; clerk, T. P. Carter; marshal, Fred Schrede, and six aldermen.
