Startup

In 1890 William Wait laid out a town site which he called Wallace, but this caused confusion with mail being sent in error to Wallace, Idaho. The Startup post office was established in 1900, and in 1901, tired of lost and delayed mail, residents changed the name to Startup in honor of local logging mill owner George S. Startup, manager of the Wallace Lumber Company.
