BROGAN, IOWA


History of Brogan, Iowa in Crawford County


http://iagenweb.org/crawford/history/broganhist.html


Brogan was located in the northwest section of Jackson Township, and it is one of the towns that slowly faded away in the history of Crawford County.


Brogan is now only a memory, and its history is preserved only in the memories of those whose families lived in the area in times past.

Story About The Past

This is a story about the past written to my sister LuAnn (webmaster IGT)

Dear LuAnn


He has really done a fine job in presenting all the historical information grouped by Iowa counties.  It is a neat way to learn more about towns dying out as the country developed.


Wish I had some information to add to it.


My mother’s parents were early settlers in Waterloo and my Dad’s were prominent people

in Nashua during the late 1800’s and early 1900’s.


My grandmother would ride in a wagon as a child with her parents on Sundays to visit the Hanna’s who were the first settlers at Waterloo.  She remembered when the native American Indians would camp south of town near where they lived.


My dad’s grandparents helped build the Little Brown Church in Nashua.


I don’t remember that my parents ever talked about any towns that had died out.  I remember driving to Elk Run Heights growing up but never knew that it had been a town.
