Long Description:
"Applegate was originally settled in 1849 by Lisbon Applegate. The small community became known as Lisbon, in honor of its founder. As the town grew it was called Bear River House. When a post office was established 1855, the community officially became known as Lisbon. George W. Applegate became postmaster and in the 1870s, the settlement was renamed to Applegate to honor its founder." (visit link)
