Diversie route

Starting with the Dutch Reformed Church, we move on to the Grotto Of the Redemption in West Bend. On to the Surf Ballroom (Hail hail rock ‘n roll). Ionia and New Hampton are should be a lot of Amish. Decorah (spam spam spam spam..Bloody vikings). Postville which had a large Jewish population. 2000 estimates of the Hasidic population range from 150 (American Jewish Year Book) to more than 300. What else did I miss?

What about the Mormons, I thought? They might have crossed Iowa on their way west and they did. Well to the south though. Their history might have been featured last year but not this. Decorah is also home to Luther College with its fine choral and instrumental music programs. And a team mascot sporting horns….
