Subject

Support For Rural People, Does Not A Town Make: The Short-lived Community of Iwacura

Description

Before the advent of the automobile, Iwacura arose out of necessity to disperse mail and save souls. James Henry Geist established a post office and the United Brethren Church was built nearby. Both served local farms in the area when it was an inconvenient distance to travel to the larger towns of Idana and Morganville by horse or buggy.
