Siouxland Small Town’s Decor, Mapleton

4 Mar

When out driving about and coming into a small community in the Siouxland region, it is always striking that a town’s decor, its buildings, are fascinating. The structures, many built in the late 1800’s or early 20th century are as fine as any you could fine in a large city, such as Chicago or Omaha. But oft times those buildings fall into disrepair from lack of use, communities losing its population due to businesses closing or moving away to large urban settings. And that is a shame. The character of these communities, like Mapleton, Iowa, add much to what created this region and gives the area depth of character.
