History on a Pinhead

Noack's original name had been Hochkirk when it was settled as the northernmost of the Wendish settlements that radiated out of Serbin in Lee County. The name was changed to Noack in 1902 when the application for a post office was filled out by the postmaster - John Ernest Noack.
