STORIES OF TOWNS PAST


Iowa Ghost Towns Management Team

I recently came across a hand-carved wooden sign from Illinois Grove, Iowa.


It specifically reads," IPD. DIST ILL GROVE 1874."


The only thing I can find on this town is that nothing of it remains. A school was built there in 1874,

and I'm wondering if this sign isn't from that.


Can you help? Thank you!

ORTONVILLE

In Dallas County just off Highway 6 there is a ghost town called Ortonville.

There is a place along the bike trail that tells about the town. This is on the road that goes to Dallas Center.

Just a little south and a little west is a cemetery where some of the people of Ortonville are buried. There now stands a church there as well. This church was built 2-3 years ago and has nothing to do with anything just easier to find the cemetery.

Ortonville was where the circus would stay when not on the road. The town was named after Hiram Orton. His wife is buried in the cemetery. This town had a few businesses.

I hope you can use this info I sent you.
