Dakin, a dispersed farming community in eastern Young County, was a station on the Chicago, Rock Island and Gulf Railway. The 1936 county highway map indicated Dakin had three houses on State Highway 24 (later U.S. Highway 380) and a cemetery, three additional houses, and a school three miles south on an unimproved road. By the early 1980s only a cemetery named Center Ridge remained at the site.
