He knew the area offered good grazing lands; and he was convinced that the Hereford breed of beef cattle showed great promise for the future.Sometime after his initial purchase of land, T. L. Miller learned that the Chicago, Danville and Vincennes Railroad was coming through the area.By January 1870, there was complete rail service to Chicago.
