  • County Surveyor John C. Brinkerhoff has just completed a plat of the village of Creston and placed it in the Recorder's office. It is a fine piece of workmanship and gives evidence of great care and labor in its execution. All streets and lots are laid off and the plat will be of incalculable benefit to the county officials and the citizens of Creston. Mr. Brinkerhoff deserves credit for the handsome manner in which he has been able to turn out the work. [2]
