The Old Farm House

Category: Places


Photo and caption by Lisa Meylor

We visited family in Marcus, a small farming town in northwest Iowa, and made a stop at the farm my father grew up on. It is under new ownership now, but they only farm the land. The old house still stands but is now filled only with memories (and probably spiders!). I have been told that my grandmother used to grow Iris’ near the house. Many family farms are becoming abandoned as larger corporate farms become the norm. The last of the Meylor’s left Marcus with Uncle Jerry’s move in late 2011.

Location: Marcus, Iowa
