Broadway in Arnolds Park: Everything You Could Want In A Town
Thursday, November 3, 2022 at 7:00 at the Dickinson County Museum

Arnolds Park’s Broadway street wasn’t always just drinking establishments—at one time it had everything you could want from a small, self-sustaining town.  We’ll talk about the hotels, rooming houses, theaters and—of course—drinking establishments that have occupied “uptown” over the years.

Presented by Jonathan Reed, noted local historian and author of Okoboji and the Iowa Great Lakes and Lost Resorts of the Iowa Great Lakes.
