How did Almond get its name? According to Ralph Tess’ “Our Heritage: Almond and Vicinity,” Jacob Meyers secured an agreement to carry mail between Berlin and Stevens Point in 1847. Meyers, a native of the Mohawk Valley of New York, started a stagecoach and freight route between the two communities, but needed a stop for the horses in between the route. He set up a barn and an inn in what is now Almond. Meyers, who is considered one of the first pioneers, purchased land in the town of Buena Vista, where he produced feed for the horses.
