Remains:

Yewed was platted in 1902 and had a station on the Kansas City, Mexico and Orient Railway. The community applied for a Post Office under the name Dewey in honor of Admiral George Dewey. However, since another community – Dewey, Oklahoma – already had that name, the letters were reversed and the name Yewed was assigned to the community. The Post Office operated from December 24, 1898, to April 30, 1952.
