In 1850, visitors to Iowa's Black Hawk County seemed as likely to run across traces of deer, elk, buffalo or beaver as they were to find evidence of the 135 settlers spread out over 567 square miles. While the human population has steadily grown since then, the roots of that habitation have been anything but fixed. Towns have sprung up and withered away, lacking the glamour and resources of neighboring communities (or maybe just their access to the railroad). Some of the places brought to life in Linda McCann's history have only lain barely dormant in fond memories, while others represent a landscape even old-timers might be shocked to learn was there.

About the Author:

Linda Betsinger McCann has been researching genealogy for about thirty years. It was only when her oldest granddaughter was born that she realized she needed to put her information into readable form, and she wrote a biography of her grandmother. That pursuit wetted her appetite, and she has written several bios since. She also began researching the history of the Iowa area where she lives. Linda's great-grandparents settled in Iowa as early as the 1850s, and the seventh generation of her family lives in her hometown presently. Linda is president and a founding member of her local historical society and spends much of her time researching local history. This is her thirteenth book and second in the History Press series about abandoned towns in Iowa.
