In one of the historic houses, we admired this beautiful organ. The old hymn book on the organ looked well used.
We thought the "spork" was an innovative idea!
This is the sign on the original well shown below.
This was the train station. The office was on the main floor and the station master and his family lived upstairs. They'd sure have to learn to sleep through anything!!!
Bryce was trying to get some information but "Mr. Manne Quin" wasn't too helpful.
We liked these old train lamps.
This buggy pulled into the local hardware store. We saw several Amish around town.
We also saw some other forms of transport and agricultural equipment.
I'm sure this was a few steps up from the horse and plow but not quite a John Deere yet!
The John Deere factory is in Iowa and their patented color started early.
These are butter pats that are placed on the dinner table - one for each person to put their butter on. Various types and qualities. I thought they were so cute that when we found some with roses on them at a Kalona antique store, we bought them.
Lost Bryce for a while then found him wearing this. Didn't know I should have been looking for Abe Lincoln!
