A Siouxland celebration of 125 years, Quimby

1 Jul

Quimby, Iowa, celebrated its 125th anniversary as a community this weekend. No easy feat for a small Midwest community. It seems such places as Quimby, and others like it are fading into history as rural American looks to find jobs and industry to sustain itself into the future. But this weekend belonged to its residents and guests as people got together to watch a parade, attend a carnival and see friends, old and new, coming together as a community, which is what the Midwest and Siouxland is all about. More photographs of Quimby, Iowa, celebrating its birthday.
