The Poweshiek History Preservation Project is a joint effort between the Grinnell College Libraries and the Drake Community Library to preserve the history of the people and places of Poweshiek County. Over the years, dozens of community members have brought in letters, photographs, scrapbooks, ledgers, and other documents that tell the area's history. This site contains over 120 items, including photos of roadwork construction, local churches, museums, and portraits of prominent community members. Most of the items here date from the late 19th and early 20th century and they provide a remarkable look into the changes throughout the community during this period. Additionally, the site contains several oral histories from locals who have lived here for decades. Visitors can search through the offering by date, type, or geographic coverage.
