KB in Iowa BS: genealogy of towns (22) RE: BS: genealogy of towns 18 Apr 11

Where I live in Iowa there was a 100th anniversary book printed in 1938 that contains lots of interesting info about the founding of the town and the goings on up to 1938. There was another book printed in 1976 for the US bicentenial that has little to do with the US bicentenial and much more to do with the town. Then in 1988 there was a 150th anniversary book printed that mostly covers things that have taken place since 1938.

Fortunately these are all available at our local library. When I moved here in 1995 you could check them out and take them home to read. Now they are only available to look at in a reading room. The Chamber of Commerce still has some copies of the 1988 book so I have one of those. Reading them really helped me get a feel for the place. A number of the family names are still well represented in town.

I'm curious what town you are researching g of t.
