Prior to the arrival of the railroad Macel was an isolated section consisting of heavily timbered land. The railroad opened avenues of business when the timber was cut and shipped. After the timber was cut and sold the settlers turned the farming as additional acreage was opened for cultivation.The Government first surveyed the land for the township in 1841. Land sales were made in 1853 until 1856. The first settlers to purchase land were, E.S. Watson, Nelson Evans, O.M. Coswick, Henry Thomas and C. Ledbetter.
