A Project Read Program on Tuesday, August 13, 2013 - 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. - Linda McCann is the author of several local history books, including The Cedar Valley Road. The Waterloo, Cedar Falls, & Northern Railway operated for over fifty years and impacted many lives during its existence. Even now, people can recall the conductor on ‘their’ car, or talk about riding the ‘trolley’ to college. Farmers rode the northern Iowa rail to town to sell their produce and factories in Waterloo shipped by the Cedar Valley Road. Come listen to Linda share this fascinating history on Tuesday, August 13, 2013 - 6:30pm to 7:30pm. She'll have books available to purchase as well. Visit The Iowan's website to buy your copy in advance.
