The purpose of this narrative was to tell the early history of Onawa, Iowa, from approximately 1857 to 1912. Also, it was hoped that this writing would create a better understanding of the many problems which face a small town as it struggles to grow into a prosperous community. Formation of the community was slow, tedious work started by founding fathers and continued by each following generation. Furthermore, it was hoped that the reader's mind might be stimulated into drawing a comparison between Onawa and any small town which might be known to them.
