    There are some very important people in Elgin.  In 1894, the first post office was inside a man's house named Mr. Jeffers.  It was a one-man postal service.  He would ride on horseback, house to house, carrying mail.  Dr. Watson was a doctor a long time ago.  He would go to peoples' houses on horseback, and he would give them the medicine.
