Last Stage Coach

On April 30, 1914, The Hanna Herald said: "The Castor stage made its last trip April 29. Many travelers who came to this town in the early days can remember the old team of saddened, knee-sprung bays that used to toil over the dusty roads in summer through and through the drifts in winter, carrying the mail and those who were destined for this young town. Seldom was the stage delayed. It never made any record for speed, but was always on the job."

The stage was operated by Scorry (Wm.) Glover, who hauled most of the lumber for the first stores, homes and for the first school in Hanna. He also hauled the loads of furniture for the first school established in 1912.
