Rat - A post-office north of Timber on Big Creek since 1899. Named by James Sweeney, the first postmaster, in disgust because he could not have the name he wanted. He had asked for the name Buckhorn because he had a fine pair of horns over the post-office door; but the Department rejected that name as too long and already used elsewhere in the state. (--Place Names.) It was located in Sections 13 & 14, Township 31 N, Range 3 W, on Highway P, in the northeast corner of the county.
