History:  

JEFFERS, a city in Amboy Township, section 20, incorporated as a village on May 9, 1900, was named in honor of George Jeffers, a wealthy landowner, from whose homestead a part of the site of this railway village was purchased. The village was surveyed by the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul Railroad in 1899, its first depot located in a box car. The townsite of 20 blocks, 4 blocks south and 5 blocks west of block 1, was platted by Frank H. Peavey, president of Interstate Land Co., and all streets were named after employees of the Peavey Elevator. The post office opened in 1900 in the Faust store, Albert A. Faust, first postmaster.
