In 1855 a resident purchased property in Independence and established Eby's Hotel and Eby's General Store. (This hotel still stands today having thought to be built in 1790.) Because of the importance of this area, it took on the name of Eby's Corner. In 1860 ceremonies were held in the Town "church-School-Band Hall" and the commits was give the name Bismarck. During World War I the name Bismarck became unpopular with the residents and a special town meeting was called. In 1920 the residents again changed the name to Quentin to honor Quentin Roosevelt. A plaque explaining this action can be found on the Unite Church of Christ front lawn. [www.westcornwalltwp.com]
