While we were driving through the Loess Hills on Saturday en route to visit my grandmother's grave, we passed through a small town that I had been to a few times as a child. We went because there was a geocache there to discover.
It was like stepping back in time!
None of the streets in Castana, Iowa are paved.
The old school appeared to be closed.
The central park had a cool memorial to local veterans, which included the corner pillars and entrance to the former bank which is no longer standing on the site. There was also a time capsule buried there, scheduled to be opened in 2036.
At the community center we discovered Castana's volunteer fire truck, ready to be dispatched in case of emergency!
What do you think? 1940's? 1950's?
