Multiple citizens with a vision revitalized the town and helped it become the significant city that it is today. Make sure to pick up a copy of the town’s complete history that includes true stories like that of Elmer Kelm, the banker who started the Democratic-Farmer-Labor party or Clara Judd, the minister’s wife who was put in handcuffs for being a confederate spy!
