An early settlement in Siouxland, Ticonic

14 Apr

Again I am always amazed at finding places by serendipity, even though I later found it on a map, although I don’t know that I would have stopped after looking at the map. The small Iowa community of Ticonic was a former settlement along the Illinois Central Railroad line. From the few houses and only church now located in Ticonic, it is hard to tell what kind of community it may have once been. It definitely is peaceful during the daytime and was a pleasant stop on a wandering kind of day as I ventured out into Siouxland with finally warmer temperatures and a countryside that is beginning to look like spring.
