Geocache Description:


How did it get its name?

Correctionville-the city with the longest single name in Iowa-was named for the correction line which forms Fifth Street through the heart of the business district.

Surveyors, in making land divisions, used correction lines. Since the world is round, every land division from North to South cannot be the same size because the earth curves toward the top. To allow for this, East/West correction lines were established; adjustments were made along those lines to make all land parcels nearly equal in size.



About the Jog

In Correctionville, each North/South Street is adjusted at the Fifth Street correction line, creating a "jog". You cannot drive through our city, from North to South, without "jogging" at the correction line. Our main "jog" is at the heart of town (Fifth and Driftwood) where three townships meet.

You are looking for a larger size bison tube.  Please be respectful of the people that rest here.  BYOP and have fun!
