History

Seth H. Conover was a business man with a passion for hunting and fishing. Frequently, in the late 1890s, he would travel by train for sporting on Big Twin Lake and although there was no station there he would have the train stop to let him off. After several years the railmen began referring to the area as "Conover's Place". In time a station was built there, along with several logging camps, farms and even a brickyard. The Conover Town Hall was errected in 1935 as the town had begun to grow. The old lumber camps became popular resorts due to the ideal location.
