Exhibit celebrates DOT’s 100th anniversary
GREENFIELD — A new exhibit now on display at the Warren Cultural Center, 154 Public Square, Greenfield, marks the 100-year anniversary of the Iowa Department of Transportation. A Journey in Transportation: 100 Years Connecting People is a collection of informational banners, photos, books, license plates and slides that document the history of the state department.
It may be seen Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., in the lobby/gallery of the center through Sept. 22. A reception will be held 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday. There is no charge to view the exhibit. It is sponsored by Schildberg Construction and Henningsen Construction.
Roads, routes and rails for animal-powered wagons and stagecoaches, as well as steam-powered boats and trains began traversing the Iowa territory in the 1800s. At the turn of the 20th century, roads were being built by a variety of entities with no statewide standardization or oversight.
