(This list is based on USGS data and may include former settlements.)Both locations were railroad stations with no residential buildings immediately adjacent. Clarion was a station on what is now the Burlington Northern mainline a few miles southwest of Mendota. No siding or any visible sign of a station exists--and has not since at least 1950. Wendel station was on a Burlington Northern branch line about four miles west of Mendota. A grain elevator (at one time operated by the Wendel family) was the only structure other than nearby farmsteads. The branch railroad was abandoned and all rails removed circa 1975.
The township contains these five cemeteries: Clarion Lutheran, Erbes, German Evangelical, Hetzler and Hill.
