Abandoned gas stations, restaurants, commercial buildings and homes dot the interstitial space between the interstate and the agricultural lands of Iowa and Nebraska.

Economies change, people migrate and disasters both natural and man made have conspired in aiding this decline. They remain as emblems of an earlier period, marking time.
