There is a lot of history in the city, beginning with what was then known as Palmyra and on through to present-day Mason City.

William Mason, a veteran of the American Revolution, purchased 640 acres of land in an auction on June 1, 1803, for the price of $1,700. This land is located in what is now the Downtown city of present-day Mason. On this piece of land, in the year 1815, he laid out a plat of 16 lots and gave the settlement the name “Palmira.” Over forty additional lots were platted on the north, south, and west sides of Palmira in 1832, which was two years after the death of William Mason and was carried out by his bequest. During the process of formally recording the plat, the name “Palmyra” was given to the community that was being developed.
