Like small towns all over America, citizens from Daggett and the surrounding area gathered for a Fourth of July celebration in the late 1930s or early 1940s. Concession stands were set up along the boulevard and cars bringing folks to the celebration were parked along the streets. A horse and wagon appeared to be ready for riders and speech makers drew a crowd to the bandstand. Present-day Fourth of July celebrations are alternated between Daggett and Stephenson and are still a highlight of the summer.
