In the spring we have Spring Open Houses at our specialty
shops in our Main Street district in downtown Hampton. Summer
you’ll find live music and the historic Hampton Municipal Band
at Tuesdays on the Town. Franklin County has one of the best
fairs in the state every July; Summerfest in August is designed
for family fun and live music. The Beeds Lake Restoration Run
provides running, walking, food and fun.
We have recreational areas that make boating, camping, fishing,
and swimming a joy to do. There are many famous landmarks
in the area: the first Rural Electric Cooperative west of the
Mississippi, The Harriman Nielsen Historic Farm, and The Old
Stone House just to name a few. Fall brings the Fall Festival
and Fall Open Houses. Winter is filled with Holly Dazzle activities
including a lighted parade, wine walk, live theater and more.
There’s plenty of shopping, dining and exploring for everyone!

Shooting Complex
Pistol and rifle ranges at North
Hansell Shooting Complex
T
he North Hansell Shooting
Complex is located 2 miles
north of Hansell on Franklin
County Road S-56 (Timber
Avenue) just south of C-25. Two open
shelters were completed in 2011
to protect users of the long-range
course from the elements, with the
aid of a grant from the Community
Foundation of Franklin County.
In addition to offering practice for
carrying permits, the course is home
to the newly formed trapshooting club,
an activity shared between HamptonDumont (H-D) and Coulter Alexander

The course features a shotgun
range with a sporting clays launcher,
a rifle range with target berms at 100
to 350 yards and a pistol range with
target areas from 15 to 100 yards.
The shorter three-gun range for action
shooting is a more recent addition.
Range users will be asked for a $5
per visit fee to cover development
and maintenance of the facility. For
regular visitors, a $40 season pass
is available.
The range features reflective steel
targets, offering visual and auditory
feedback. Paper targets may be
brought.
The pistol range features swinging
steel plate targets at 15 and 25 yards,
and a dueling tree. The rifle range
offers swinging steel plate targets at
each of the target berms ranging from
the size of a deck of playing cards
up to 2 by 2 feet. Picnic tables are
available. The complex is handicapaccessible with an on-site restroom.
The North Hansell Shooting
Complex is part of the Franklin
County Conservation Department
and was built entirely by volunteers
and donations next to the site of the
former Franklin County Landfill.

of all horsepower may be used, but
must be operated at no-wake speed.

beach area.
The campground at Beeds Lake
has 144 sites, 99 with electricity.
Modern restrooms and shower facilities are available, as well as a sanitary dump station.
Half of the campsites can be reserved online, and half are available

for removing your own trash from the
park.

creek to create the west arm of the
lake.
In 1864 he sold the 40-acre lake
to William Beed, who put in the long
causeway. In 1904 the flour mill discontinued operation.
At first, support for a park financed
by local businesses was a popular
idea, but the plans never
materialized. As a result,
the lake was drained
and the land returned to
farming.
BUT THAT wasn’t the
end. In the early 1930s,
the Iowa State Fish and
Game Commission approved a plan for a state
park at the site — if the
community would provide the land.
The proposed rejuvenation of old Beeds Lake
that was put to a vote
stipulated that Franklin
County would issue
$50,000 in bonds for the
purpose of acquiring the
land and erecting a dam.
The proposal was defeated by a small
margin because it was estimated the
cost to taxpayers would amount to
$100,000.
Another attempt to develop the
area came in 1934 when an Izaak
Walton League committee began to
make plans for the construction of
Beeds Lake
the lake and development of the surrounding area. Although land prices
were depressed during this era, lake
owners sold their land for the project.
Lots on the north shore sold for $125
each.

The spillway was 170 feet long and
the dam rose 40 feet above the rock
foundation which was eight feet below
the water level. The dam was 55 feet
wide at the base and 13 feet wide at
the top.
Laborers also forged a truck trail
and three miles of foot trails into the
public areas of the park. Fifty-five
acres of native trees were planted including 10,000 donated by a Hampton
nursery.
Improvements were made to the
120-acre lake bed, sloping the banks
and rip-rapping where necessary.
Fish shelters were constructed and
the old mill pond was rebuilt to create a filtering house and a fish-rearing pond. Two public restrooms were
constructed at the picnic area and
parking space for 300 vehicles was
cleared away. By the fall of 1935 the
dam was complete and the lake was
filled. The cost of the entire project
was more than $1 million.

restocked.
In 1997, the nonprofit Friends of
Beeds Lake group spoke of draining
the lake again but was told it would
have to come up with the funds. After
the draft of a 2010 watershed management plan, funding was obtained
in Fall 2010 for a study to demonstrate the need of dredging (clearing
the sediment from) the west end of the
lake. As presented in February, 2012,
dry dredging the deepest-sedimented
part of lake is the most cost-efficient
option. Meanwhile, lake supporters
are petitioning the Department of
Natural Resources to get the lake to
the 35-priority list for Iowa water body
dredging.
Signs marking the watershed’s
north and south boundaries were
placed in 2012.
Maintenance work continues at the

Better for Business
L
ocating your business in
Franklin County is simply better for business because of
what we bring to the table.
Workforce is one example. Our labor force is business-friendly, skilled
and eager to get to work. Location is
another advantage. We are under a
day’s drive to major markets in the
Midwest such as Minneapolis and
Chicago.
Assets in Franklin County such
as buildings and developed industrial
land are much more affordable than
other parts of the state. Our incentive
packages and professional project
support have often tipped the scales
in our favor and the overall cost of
doing business is certainly a reason
Iowa is better for business. CNBC has
again ranked Iowa as having the lowest cost of doing business in the nation.
Ease of getting around is another
reason business can do better here.
Commutes are often under 15 minutes, along a well-maintained grid of
farm to market roadways. Being on
Interstate-35 and
Highways 65 and
3 so your product
travels
smoothly
doesn’t hurt, either.
A
Franklin
County
location
can be better for
your business because you would
be in a community of professionals bent on success. Interestingly
enough
many
started as Franklin
County entrepreneurs.
Sukup
Manufacturing’s world headquarters
are located in Sheffield. The multistate Kum N Go Convenience Store
chain got its start here and we are
also proud to be home to ABCM
Corporation of Hampton, an industry
leader in providing the highest quality
care to the elderly.
We invite you to consider a location in one of the fine communities
of Franklin County, a place better for
your business… better for your life.

Better for your Life
“I
ronically, rural America has
become viewed by a growing
number of Americans as having a
higher quality of life, not because
of what it has, but rather because of what
it does not have!” Don A. Dillman
So true, Mr. Dillman. We don’t have
high crime rates, exorbitant housing costs
and overcrowding found elsewhere. In
Franklin County, you can spread your
wings, play in safe neighborhoods and get
to know your neighbors.
Education matters here. Little
ones get a great start at a number of
preschools in the county. K-12 students
receive a quality education in any of four
public school districts and with a student
to teacher ratio of 11:1, your student will
get the individual attention he or she
deserves. If a parochial environment is
more to your liking, the St. Paul Lutheran
School in Latimer provides a nurturing
school experience for K-8th graders. Go
Bulldogs! Go Warhawks! Go Cadets! Go
Cougars!
Higher education is within easy reach
with community colleges in neighboring
Mason City and Iowa Falls and 4-year
universities are about an hours drive
away. Extracurricular activities abound
in all schools, providing a well-rounded
experience for students.
No compromise on healthcare. The
Franklin General Hospital in Hampton
covers the full continuum of primary
healthcare and is affiliated with the awardwinning Mercy Health Network of North
Iowa. Healthcare is convenient with family
practice medical clinics located in Latimer,
Hampton, Sheffield and Ackley where the
practitioners will know you by name. Our
communities also have trained responders
for those unexpected emergencies and
response times are nothing compared to
what you might experience in a city.
Affordable housing. Yes, really. In
tree-lined neighborhoods? Absolutely!
The average price for a home in Franklin
County is around $65,000. A $65,000
home in Franklin County would cost
you $85,000 in Nebraska or Minnesota.
Iowa’s statewide average home price
is $117,900, far less than the average
home price in Minnesota, which exceeds
$213,000.
Put your feet up. It’s laid back. It’s easy.
It’s Franklin County… better for your life.

brother were all New York City Police Department (NYPD) officers,
and Eddie was an NYPD trainee
and a police officer for two years. As
his interest in music intensified, he
eventually ended his law-enforcement
career in favor of becoming a full-time
musician.
The early days of MTV and mu-sic
videos launched Eddie Money into
stardom with a string of Top 40 hits
and platinum albums. With hits like
“Two Tickets To Paradise,” “Baby Hold
On,” “Walk on Water,” “Think I’m in
Love” and “Shakin’,” Eddie continues
to be one of the hardest-working men
in rock and roll.
Money appears in a 2012 Geico
insurance commercial, in which he
owns a travel agency where he sings
“Two Tickets to Paradise” to a family
who wants tickets for a vacation.

at number 49 on the U.S. Billboard
Hot Country Songs chart and in May
2011, “What Do You Want” peaked at

Niemann released his fourth
Arista single, “Shinin’ on Me,” from
his second Arista album, Free the

The album’s second single, “Only

released to country radio in October,
2012.
LOVE
AND
THEFT
Rounding out
Thursday night’s
entertainment is
Love and Theft,
a duo composed
of Stephen Barker Liles and Eric
Gunderson; both, vocalists and
guitarists.
Love and Theft made their chart
debut in early 2009 with the single
“Runaway,” which reached the Top
10 on Billboard Hot Country Songs.
The band’s debut album, World Wide
Open, was released in August, 2009.
“Dancing in Circles” was released
as the album’s second single in
December 2009, and reached a peak
of number 25.
In 2011, Love and Theft moved
to RCA Records Nashville and released the single “Angel Eyes”, which
hit number one in August 2012; it is
included on a self-titled album.
Stephen and Eric didn’t meet un-til
their early 20s. Stephen’s father is a
pastor and Eric’s father is a worship
pastor. Their respective fathers fed
them a steady diet of gospel, oldies
and country.
“Our parents didn’t want us listening to secular music that much. But
they’d let us listen to Elvis, Roy, and
the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. It was cool
to grow up that way, and that’s still my
favorite kind of music,” explained Eric,
who said he and Stephen work hard
to capture a more organic, country
sound. “We’re both from the South
and we’re very much in favor of embracing our country roots.”

restored, work on the house continues,
renovation of the outbuildings has
begun, corn will be planted in the field

he Franklin County Historical
Society plans activities and
events to celebrate the 75th
anniversary of completion of
the Reeve Rural Electric Administration
(REA) Power Plant.
The historical society owns the
power plant building, located south of
Hampton, and operates the REA Power
Plant Museum, located in the building.
The Reeve plant was built by
Federated
Power
Cooperative
Association, which had directors and
officers from rural electric cooperatives
(RECs) serving North Central Iowa
counties: Butler, Franklin, Grundy,
Hancock, Hardin, and Wright.
Federated’s successor is Corn Belt
Power Cooperative. During late March
1938 the Reeve plant was completed
after six months construction and went
on-line to deliver electricity to farms in
North Central Iowa.
Many area families were members of
these RECs and may have had a role in
the plant’s construction and operation
from the late 1930s into the 1950s.

FRANKLIN COUNTY HISTORICAL
MUSEUM, Hampton: Take a nostalgic step back in time when you visit
the Franklin County Historical Society
Museum complex in Hampton.
Located at the county fairgrounds
along Iowa Highway 3 on the western
edge of Hampton, the museum features outstanding exhibits of pioneer
Franklin County up to the not-so-distant past.
The more recent exhibits are
centered on: Franklin County gas
stations, grocery stores and restaurants from the past; exhibits entitled
“Fabulous Fashions Post World War
II,” “Victorian Secrets” and a crazy
quilt circa 1880. The recently added
military display room includes photos,
uniforms, weapons and other artifacts
from the Civil War through the Vietnam
War as well as a small display featuring Admiral William Leahy, who was
born in Hampton in 1875 and became
an important military leader.
The museum was opened in 1981
and was quickly filled with historic
memorabilia. An addition was completed in 1994. The museum includes
a large exhibit hall with several displays, a library full of priceless archives, a machinery hall that dates
back to the settler days, a special
room to display Franklin County 4-H/
FFA trophies, pictures, uniforms and
other memorabilia that has been donated to the museum over the years,
and an impressive collection of artifacts, ranging from an 80-year-old
corn thresher and Indian arrowhead
to a 19th century wedding dress and
an early voting machine.
The museum spans all eras of the
county’s history. You can take a look
at the prehistoric mastodon bones
found in a gravel pit near Geneva or
Historical Sites
examine the tools of the first white
settlers or view a Japanese aviator’s
uniform. Several period groupings, including a small country classroom and
an early farm kitchen, are among the
“must-sees” when visiting the museum. Period clothing, paintings, books
and utensils detail the pioneer history
of Franklin County. Genealogy and
history buffs won’t want to overlook
the cataloged photo display featuring
subjects from Civil War days to historical snapshots of the county’s towns
and community leaders. Catering to
researchers, the museum also contains an extensive archive selection
containing court records, bound volumes of the county’s newspapers,
club record books, scrapbooks, etc.
Hamptonites
featured in the museum include:

wife Ginny, died of cancer. About her,
he wrote the book, “Ginny: A Love
Remembered.”
THE ROCK ISLAND DEPOT, also at
the museum complex, dates back to
the turn of the 20th Century. It was restored for use as an exhibit hall specializing in railroad history. The depot
features a working order board and
signals, telegraph, benches and a
brick walkway.
Sitting on the stretch of track next
to the depot is a 40-year-old caboose

Memorial Hall
Hampton
MEMORIAL HALL, Hampton: It is the
only “Soldiers Memorial Hall” in Iowa
and listed on the National Register of
Historic Places. It was built in 1890
after the Iowa General Assembly authorized counties to establish a tax to
build such monuments to honor those
Civil War veterans from the county
who were deceased. The building’s
unique architecture makes it attractive to visitors. The soldier standing sentinel over the building was
refurbished in 1992. And the marble
tablets inside the building, bearing
the names of the veterans, are truly
one-of-a-kind. Today, the hall is used
for meetings of the local American
Legion Post and the Daughters of the

rooms, including two bedrooms on

the second floor, a full basement and
a pantry off the kitchen. The structure was built with limestone from
the banks of nearby Maynes Creek.
The house was inhabited until 1956.
In 1979, the property was deeded to
the Franklin County Historical Society,
which converted the home into a pioneer museum, opening in June 1985.
The exterior was repaired in 2009.
The interior is under construction.
Plans are to make it a living museum
with quilting classes, spelling bees
and tours for children. In 2013, a loom
was moved into the house from the
Franklin County Historical Museum.
Stop by the Stone House Sept. 20
and 21 for historical demonstrations,
an antique show and flea market.

Rojas at 319-491-6260.
MAYSVILLE SCHOOLHOUSE, rural
Hampton: The town of Maysville was
settled in 1856. It grew to 150 people
and featured a post office, hotel, two
blacksmith shops, two stores, a steam
saw mill and a school. Maysville citizens dreamed of making their town
the county seat, but the railroad went
through Hampton instead. By 1890,
the little town had died.
All that remains today is the twostory limestone schoolhouse built
in 1867. Situated on a crest of a hill
and visible from U.S. Highway 65
about 5 miles south of Hampton on
95th Street, the school has survived
a full century after the town’s death. It
has been used as a community center, a site for scouting programs and
campouts, and until recently served
as the official voting place for Reeve
Township. The school is not open on
a regular basis, but may be toured by
contacting Franklin County Historical
Museum at 641-456-5777.
REA POWER PLANT MUSEUM, rural Hampton: Located 4 miles south
of the Franklin County Fairgrounds
in Hampton and 1 1/2 miles west on
gravel roads, the Corn Belt Power
REA plant was the first farmer-owned
power plant in the nation to receive
an REA grant and only the second in
the nation to go “on line” in the 1930s.
The plant was given to the Franklin
County Historical Society and has
been turned into a rural and electrical
Historical Sites
museum. In 2013, the museum marks
the 75th anniversary of the plant going on line. It is listed on the National
Register of Historic Places. For more
information or a tour, call Marvin
O. Rodemeyer at 641-456-3477 or
Franklin County Historical Museum at

DOWS
DOWS DEPOT/IOWA WELCOME
CENTER, BLACKSMITH SHOP &
MERCANTILE, Dows: More than
7,500 people visit the Dows Depot
Welcome Center each year. The center is about two miles from the interstate. The historical society installed a
sequence of Burma Shave-type signs
along the way to let drivers know they
were still on course after hearing from
farmers that drivers were stopping,
looking puzzled and turning around.
The historical society runs the depot,
blacksmith shop, mercantile, Evans
prairie house and country school with
largely volunteer labor.
The Dows Depot Welcome Center includes railroad memorabilia and
other historical items from the town.
A man named Stephen Dows
brought the railroad from Holland
through the town of Otisville to Clarion in 1880. Otisville was renamed in
Dows’ honor. By 1885, a few more
lines connected to Dows. The depot
was built in 1896 and operated until
1980.
In 1987, the Dows Historical Society bought the depot. More than 120
volunteers worked on restoring it for
nine months, and the group received
a state matching grant to help open
the building as an official State of
Iowa Welcome Center.
The welcome center has information about Iowa attractions, restrooms, a telephone and a gift shop
with wines, jams, crafts and antiques.
The Dows Mercantile housed
general stores, a hardware store,
hairdressers, a veterinarian and
apartments over the years. The historical society purchased it in 1987,
like the depot, to prevent it from being demolished. It opened in 1989
and now features folk art, crafts and
fine art from Iowa artists and manufacturers and an antique mall. The

There is no admission charge for
self-guided or guided tours.
The Blacksmith Shop
was willed to
the
historical
society
in 1990. Until that time,
Fred Quasdorf owned
and operated
it, according
to museum
staff.
The Quasdorf Blacksmith and
Wagon Museum, as it is fully called,
is said to be one of the best-equipped
blacksmith shops in the Midwest.
Belts and pulleys move through
the original thick plank floor to the
large motors in the basement. The
belts and pulleys also power the band
saws and a drill on the main floor.
The upper floor was used to make
the descendants of Mr. and Mrs. Ingebret Evans chose to move it off the
homestead it occupied rather than demolish it.
The Evans family had 14 children
and raised 12 of them in the 16 by
14 square foot, two room, two story
house. As many as 10 Evans children, plus the parents, lived in the
house at any one time. It has modest
furnishings: a bed, a rocker made by
Ingebret Evans and a stove. Displays
describe the history of the house and
the process of moving it off the homestead.
Hours the welcome center operates are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday
through Saturday and from noon to 5
p.m. on Sunday. For a tour of any of
any building run by the Dows Historical Society, call 515-852-3595.

DOWS COUNTRY SCHOOL: The
Historical Sites
Vernon Township Country Schoolhouse was built in 1887 in Vernon
Township of Wright County. (Dows
sits on the line between Wright and
Franklin counties.) The Dows Historical Society and the Dows Community
moved the building from its original
site and placed it on a permanent
foundation near the Welcome Center
and Mercantile. It was restored inside
and out and is furnished with original
desks, blackboards, and books. The
grounds are planted with native trees
and shrubs.
The historical society gives a tour
of the schoolhouse to Clarion-Goldfield students, a school district that
includes Dows, each fall. Tours can
be given to students from any district,
volunteers emphasized.
The school is open for tours by
calling 515-8523595.
