Eden Township

Eden Township (settled in 1877) is in the NW border of Lake County and encases the town of Irons. Irons got its start as a railway station in 1894 and is said, in 1909,  to be mapped out (platted) by A. Glen Haslett and G.E. Hilderbrand. The Irons family were early settlers, and named the town Irons after themselves.
