Long Description:
Just a little bit of this towns colorful past includes stories about the City Marshall, John Rucker, who during the depression used to lock up men coming in on the rail overnight so they wouldn't get robbed...

Not long on creature comfort, there is a bit of something to be learned from the old days and old ways.
