Madison County

Book Description:

Early days in Madison County, IA, are recalled through colorful tales and factual data in this brand new 60-page booklet, a reprint of the hard-to-find booklet, Scenic Madison County, Iowa , compiled by Lloyd H. Smith in 1961, plus an excerpt from the rare 1938 WPA book, Iowa, a Guide to the Hawkeye State. This 11" x 8.5" spiral bound booklet, titled Madison County, Iowa, USA, is one of over 750 booklets we have reproduced, all preserving the writings of early historians. We've printed it on 60# paper with the 3-color front cover protected with a vinyl sheet. This information in this booklet, written at least thirty years before Robert James Waller wrote his famous love story, offers a broad background for the location of The Bridges of Madison County. Subjects include: Covered Bridge Capital, Home of Delicious Apple; the county courthouse; making lime and bricks; Winterset City Park; History of Monumental Park; Pammel State Park; Old Mills; Rattlesnakes; Cemateries; and other bits of history and trivia. Illustrations include: the 1850 courthouse; the 1868 courthouse; and the 1876 courthouse; the first stone house, built in 1854 by Caleb Clark; an 1861 stone house; an example of how old stone masons turned corners; Ross Rogers atop a stone tower memorial; Roseman Bridge and 6 other covered bridges; Old North River Stone Schoolhouse from 1874; the Clark Tower, a shelter house and a log cabin in Winterset City Park; Monumental Park; an old millwheel, a former water tunnel, shelter house and Old Backbone Mill in Pammel State Park; Griswold Mill on Grand River; and several pictures. The WPA excerpt concerns Winterset and Pammel State Park.
