Town #46: FERRON est. 1877
North of Moore is the bigger town of Ferron. Ferron couldn't be called big except in a comparison with Moore. Ferron's big celebration is Peach Days. The town is named after Augustus Ferron who surveyed the area in 1873. One of my great-great grandfathers lived here with his family for about a year in the early days of settlement before moving on to Giles. Ferron looks a lot greener than Giles. What was he thinking?
