History[edit]

The place occupied by the current town was named Courtland in 1865, but was previously named Hilo.[8] Courtland was platted in 1882.[9] There are conflicting records for the origin of the name. According to Bryant (1882)[10] the city was named for Cortland County, New York and not spelled the same; however, Stennett (1908) [11] suggests it is named after Courland, a once-Germanized region of present-day Latvia by an emigrant, J.H. Stewart, and was accidently misspelled on the official record.
