History:  

GARY, a city in sections 16 and 21 of Strand Township, founded in 1883, received this name in compliment to Garrett L. Thorpe, its first merchant, who came here from Manchester, Iowa, became an extensive landowner in this county, and settled at Ada. The village was incorporated on February 21, 1901; a number of businesses, including a creamery, developed in 1886 with the Northern Pacific Railroad's coming; the post office was established in 1887.
