History

the text in this section is copied from an article in Wikipedia

The town is named after Seth H. Conover, who would travel to the area for hunting and fishing. He would often take a train to the area, even though there was no station there. Eventually, the railroad men started calling the area "Conover's Place." A station was soon built there, and several logging camps were established. The town continued to grow when other businesses were established. In 1935, the town hall was built.
