New England Hill Town in Siouxland, Linn Grove

20 Nov

Tucked into the hills of northwest Iowa is a small community that struck me as a small place out of New England or northern Arkansas. The small community of Linn Grove sits among a small forested, hilly area. It’s lovely, and a nice little place to get away from a larger community and a chance to walk about and talk with locals who have lived here a number of years. A grain elevator is probably the most active business, especially during fall harvest, but there were a couple of other enterprises I came upon while visiting the community with a friend that were delightful. Surprises while out and about seeing Iowa is always fun and much better than sitting at home thinking about the winter that will soon be here.
