David Thompson (1919) wrote about Lanfair, "During the last two or three years many settlers have taken up homesteads in this valley, most of them near Lanfair, and have been attempting to raise crops by dry farming. In the fall of 1917 more than 130 registered voters were living here. There was a small store at Lanfair, at which groceries, gasoline, and oil could be obtained. "
  There is a telephone near this intersection. The new telephone has a telephone number, which unfortunately I don't know. The old telephone number was "Lanfair #1." The old telephone looked like this (38KB,GIF).
