THE TOWN OF LAMONI
It is impossible to think of Graceland without thinking of Lamoni. They are so
closely bound together that they seem almost a part of each other. It was the town
that made the College possible and because of her loyalty and devotion to the cause of
education, Graceland safely passed through the hardships of her early years and has
come to occupy a well-established position among the schools of the land.
Lamoni boasts 1,700 inhabitants and is a very prosperous and progressive town. Her
schools are the best and she has a system of parks at the present time of which she may
be justly proud.
On the north where the race track and ball ground have been for many years, is a
well equipped athletic park where men and women play golf, tennis, baseball, and foot-
ball. Central Park, west of the depot, is a beautiful pleasure park with good shade
and playground equipment. It is a real community center during the warm portion
of the year. A fine stucco band stand occupies a prominent place and it is equipped
with a movie screen so that during the summer months the Community Pictures may
be shown here. In the east part of town we find the pleasant little auto camp. Brick
ovens, tables, and fine large shade trees tempt the weary tourist to stop and camp for
the night. In this chain of parks is a permanently arranged reunion ground south of
town. This park, known as South Woods, has been cleared and laid off in streets and
lots and is the scene of the annual summer reunion of the Latter Day Saints of the
Lamoni Stake, and also many school and college picnics and parties.
Lamoni supports a community lyceum course as well as community pictures. Here
philosopher, scientist, artist, and musician find audience worth their best efforts.
There is a public library, founded in 1921, which has come to be a well established
institution. Her literary productions are the Lamoni Chronicle and Rabbilcraft, both
published by the Blair Printing Company.
The town has several live social clubs. The largest is the Community Club and
closely following is the Ad Club, partaking of the nature of a Chamber of Commerce.
There are several important women's clubs, the Boosters, the Patroness Society, and
others. There are also chapters in the following lodges: Masonic, I. O. O. F., Knights
of Pythias, and M. VV. of A., besides the Ralph Judson Post of the American Legion
and the Women's Auxiliary of the American Legion.
The spirit of Lamoni is cooperative and her interest in the college and friendly
spirit toward the college students are very much appreciated.
