A Brief History of Henderson

With the end of the war Henderson's only product was no longer in high demand and by 1947 Henderson was in danger of literally becoming 'war surplus' to be sold off at auction. On April 16 1953, Henderson incorporated with a population of 7410 and only about 13 square miles in area.
