I grew up on a farm, but within 6 miles of where my Great Grandparents settled after immigrating in 1885. The first settlers named Emden, Il after the city they came from in Emden, German. When I grew up in the 50s, that little town of 500 had 3 car dealerships, 2 restaurants, a grocery store, TV repair came latter, and lots of businesses to support the farmers. Today nearly all the businesses are gone. 1 bar, 1 restaurant, bank, and part-time post office is about all that is left on Main St. I go back once a month to participate in the historical society and tiny museum in town. The houses are pretty well kept up, but 25% of the population is over 65. Visiting is just enough for me. I never liked the gossip and politics in little towns.
