History

Originally called Kenneth it was moved to the present day location to allow for an increase in the population as to facilitate a county seat. Later in 1888, the coming of the Union Pacific Railroad further boosted the population.

In 1896 the courthouse was burned and most of the county records were destroyed. The first organized church was the Hoxie Presbyterian established on June 6, 1886. [11]

Hoxie was laid out in 1886 [12] and named for H. M Hoxie. [13] >
