"When Cedar Falls was Young" added to Digital Collections

This 1928 pamphlet about Cedar Falls describes how the town looked in its early days.    See the book at: http://cdm.lib.uni.edu/cdm4/browse.php?CISOROOT=/wcfwy


Atlas of Black Hawk County 1926

Rod Library has just added a copy of the "Atlas of Black Hawk County 1926" to its Digital Collections. This book provides a unique look at our county in a different era where the township assumed great importance in local government.

The ideal civil township was six miles square, and the township held elections, repaired roads, and gave relief to the poor. In addition to the detailed township maps in this volume you can find farmers' directories which detail the owner (or renter) of each parcel of land, his wife, children, and how many years he had lived in the county.
