This little known marker was placed by the Marshall county sesquicentennial commission on the Marshall-Tama county line to commemorate the location where a spur of the Cedar Rapids Missouri Railroad penetrated into Marshall County, Iowa. Back in the 1880’s rail service could make or break communities. Groups campaigned against each other, to either bring rail service to their area or to keep the service they had. Those little villages that won the battle, usually prospered and grew, while those that didn’t generally vanished. This is a cache only site, so BYOP.
There is sufficient room to park along the gravel road.
