HISTORY by Tony Howe: 

This location was listed as Durham in the 1890's public timetable for the railroad. It never was listed in the employee timetables, however. Wilco was established in 1917 when Williams Yellow Pine Co. built a large sawmill here. The town quickly died out after the mill cut out in 1931.
