This Great Northern Rail Road station was founded in 1906 in NE1/4 Section 12-159-89, Spencer Township, four miles SSW of Kenmare, and named for F.E. Kenaston, President of the Minneapolis Thresher Company and a stockholder of the GNRR. The post office was established October 23, 1907 with Thomas Dodd's post master. A village of about 50 people existed for many years, but a decline began after World War II and the post office closed July 2, 1965 with mail to Kenmare.
