Long before the coming of the Kennedy’s Masheks, Tomeks, Duncans or Howells, the prairie hawks came to roost in a point of woods where timber left off and open, rolling hills began. Quite naturally, the area came to be known as hawk’s point, then the Hawk Point Community and finally the town of Hawk Point.
Early settlers, farmers mostly, began drifting into that section of Lincoln County during the first half of the 19th century to stake out homesteads and start new lives on the land that afforded more open space than the eastern regions they had left.
