Located on a narrow strip of land slightly elevated above the highway, Bluff Siding has a few liquor stores and houses but not much else.
Early maps labeled this area Atlanta Station but its current name comes from the railroad siding built by the Chicago and Northwestern railroad, so its cars could load lime from the local lime plant.
