History

Netherby had a post office from 1862 to 1914.[3]

By 1874, Netherby had a saw mill, store, and a population of 100.[4]

In 1887, an independent agricultural society called the Netherby Union Agricultural Society had established its headquarters in Netherby.[5]

Little remains of the original settlement but a store, the Netherby Variety and Convenience Store.[6]
