Rankin was a small community, located just north of Fillmore during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. A post office in Rankin was in operation from 1894 to 1908. The community was named after John Rankin, the original owner of the town site. A cemetery is the only marker of the past community that remains today, which includes multiple tombstones with the family name Rankin on them.
