ElkhornSilverKingwriteup...turn off of Hwy 22 about 6 miles west of Mill City near Mehama. Just a few miles up the road you can see a very old schoolhouse that dates probably from the 1900s. Today it and the old gymnasium are on gated off private land, but they are easy to see from the highway.

True story. In the 1800s a woman & her small son were riding a train. She was leaving her husband. She was on her way to her sisters house. The train made a stop in a small town in Iowa(?). The woman & her son got off, but never got back on. They never made it to their destination. And were never seen again. What happened to them? I've always wanted to write a story about this..... sls
