Postcard images, including vintage views of the 1890 courthouse:

Photos were taken September 28, 2008 at 2:30 p.m. We visited six counties in southwest Iowa following a visit to Omaha for a dog jog. The day started with thick fog - so that we could not take any morning photos until the fog lifted! It was worth the wait, because we had a lovely afternoon!
