Exploring Siouxland, Merrill

22 May

Another nearby Siouxland community to which I live near is Merrill, Iowa. It too is a community through which I have driven many times or driven by on one of the highways. Going someplace, but not stopping. Until finally I did. As with most small communities, it has a grain elevator which anchors its business district around which the small town prospers.

    Yes. When I head to Orange City, I always look for the grain elevator and know my turn is there. Navigating by sight. Plus names on the bins are helpful.
