He opened a trading post, post office, grist mill and several other frontier businesses that encouraged other settlers to move in. The town was incorporated in 1897 and continued to grow after Frank Phillips opened Phillips Petroleum Company. Modern companies have since taken over, but the Bartles and Phillips names are still apparent throughout the town.
