In the fall of 1905 Max Knoll opened the first post office, under the name of Knollton, and set up the first general store. The name of the post office was changed to Strome on July 1, 1906. A hotel, a hardware store, and a church followed. Strome became an incorporated village on February 3, 1910.[5]

Name
