Old Home Town - 100 years ago

April 8, 2009


From the Lawrence Daily World for April 8, 1909: “Grant Township farmers are planning still another levee to protect their land from spring rains and surveyors are busy. A dike was built after the 1904 flood but was washed away last spring. The start of the rebuilding will depend on the cost and how much money can be raised. … J.D. Bowersock has closed a contract for a large 250-horsepower generator which will be added to the power plant here.”
