Fun Fact: Niles City

Niles City was the name given to the village established on the homestead of  Madison Hatten in 1886. When the village of Niles City petitioned the United States government for a post office, they found that Niles City was already taken. The local folks renamed the village Wiggins in honor of Madison Hatten’s father, Wiggins Hatten.
