The town of Kinderhook was laid out in 1836 by Chester Churchill and Bridge Whitten. The Wabash Railroad touches the town. Two churches and an excellent school are the town's pride.

Hull, in this township, is at the junction of the Wabash and Chicago, Burlington & Quincy railroads.

Hull has a bank and a newspaper, two churches, a large grain elevator and is a good business center.

The town was laid out in 1871 by David Hull, Rensselear Sweet and William Bridge.
