After below post got to thinking about our rural communities. Small town in eastern Iowa had 2 grocery stores movie theatre, lumber yard. Drugstore , ford dealership, Chrysler dealer ship , creamery John Deere allis charmers , international ,2 hardware stores 5 churches, locker plant 2 restuArants, 2 bars , 2 barbers . Pool hall Active school, with all grades . Several auto repair,gas stations , seasonal ice cream store ,A community fair . And now there is barely a skeleton remaining , homes are still there but a lot of what was once there is now nothing more than memories.
