Silos and Smokestacks?

Silos and Smokestacks National Heritage Area? WTF?

Sites in this 37-county region of
northeastern Iowa illustrate the
transformation that took place as
mechanization paved the way for
a distinctly American system of
industrialized agriculture.

Tractor design and manufacture,
mechanized farming, corn-hog
production, dairying, beef cattle
feeding, and meat packing
continue to characterize the
region. The unique cultural
histories of family farming and
agribusiness are equally well
represented.
