Sheldahl is one of the unusual small towns that have a portion in three counties; Polk, Story and Boone. This cache is in the Polk County portion which is basically south of County Avenue.
The area was settled by 120 Norwegian immigrants from Lisbon, Illinois on June 7, 1855; including Osmond and Anna Sheldahl and five of their children. It incorporated as a city on January 18, 1882. Descendants still live in the area today. One of my memories of Sheldahl is the fireworks display and carnival that they, at least used to, share with Slater on a rotating basis.
On certain days and times muggles might be a problem with this cache..
