History on a Pinhead

Dunn began life as a watering hole. The town's namesake was Alonzo T. Dunn, the landowner of the townsite in 1889. Dunn's house became a mail drop and a year later it was made an official post office with Dunn as postmaster. A school opened that same year, although population figures aren't available for the town's early history.

In 1938 Highway 208 was constructed and well from Dunn's homestead was covered by the new road. Dunn's population was given as 75 for the year 2000.
