New Town in Webster County
Fort Dodge, April 3. – A plat has been filed at the office of the county recorder of Webster County for a new town, to be known by the name of Gypsum City. The town is located at what is known as Carbon Junction about eight miles from this city, where extensive gypsum mills have just been established by the Carbon Plaster Company. The town is located at the intersection of the Mason City and Fort Dodge and Illinois Central railroads, and it is expected that it will experience rapid growth.
