History on a Pinhead

Lem Thedford was an early settler who organized the area's first rural school district. The International-Great Northern Railroad made the town a stop on their line in 1874.

Thedford had 25 people in 1910. By 1966 Thedford consisted mainly of the cemetery and a few residents who drove over several dirt roads.
