Finding Crossroads in Siouxland, Germantown

7 Nov

Sometimes when out driving I come across communities that anymore are just crossroads to another place down the road. I find that sad in that as I explore Siouxland so many communities now have lost the vibrancy of their youth when they were first founded. People settled their families in these communities, like Germantown. Expecting them to grow and nourish their own dreams having settled a new frontier area. But now, the glimmer of the past is distant and unless one is looking for these communities a visitor just might pass them by.
