The Iowa Story

Special Links

INDIANAPOLIS, IA

As of today, there are no buildings or dwellings standing. The school is now a barn and the church was removed about 10 years ago.

The only thing that states there was a town is a huge sign that my dad had placed there. It says Indianapolis which is right next to his driveway. My dad had the only gas station in town.

My dad is Glen Thatcher. He has been in this house since the day he was born. He had twlo brothers and two sisters still living.

The farm house he lives in was his parents, and it was dedicated last year for the 100th Year for being in the family.

He has pictures that date back to the 1800’s where people came from miles away to go to the Baptist church which use to be right next to him. I was baptized at that church.

Glen Allen Thatcher (2005)
