Nemegos was established in the 1890s as a sectional point on the CPR between the divisional points of Chapleau to the west and Cartier to the east. The residents were a mix of native and European settlers, primarily Finnish people. The post office was opened in 1912 by S.A. Hatch. There was a store, hotel, bunkhouses and a one-room school. Some of the men worked on the CPR; however, most were logging contractors, producing axe ties under contract to Austin, Nicholson Ltd. of nearby Chapleau.
