County Reporters


KHOI county reporters take a virtual tour to towns around Ames, starting with Story City which is celebrating the centennial of the Story City Opera House on Dec. 18, exactly 100 years after it was built in 1912. Second we visit Boone for a report of the recent travels of the Santa Express on the Boone and Scenic Valley Railroad. Third, we recognize the current exhibit of the Slater Area Historical Association commemorating the Great Train Wreck of 1913, another centennial. Our circle ends in Nevada at the recently opened Queen Anne Bed and Breakfast in a historic home built in 1878.

    Guests included:
  • Paul Wierson, Story City
  • Fenner Stevenson, Boone
  • Don Todd, Slater
