Polk Directory 1911 - 1912

Because of onerous field work required to compile a directory one-hundred years ago, data for those communities recorded early in the survey can be fully two years old at publication. In Polk’s description of Redmond, the population figures attributed to the town are actually for the entire district, more than double Redmond’s population. In the summary, not listed as assets are Redmond's most profitable businesses: four thriving saloons, the taxes for which were the motivation for incorporation in 1912. Although “City Hall” is listed, there was none. Corrections of misspelled names are mine. Naomi Hardy, Redmond Historical Society Historian.
