Nodaway Town Sign

Cute town with a cute name! It is pretty easy to pull over and park to take a photo.

[Bianca Giron, 11/05/2019]

Embodiment of a rural "sleepy town." The name might come from "nodawa," how the Dakota Sioux referred to the area, and translates to "crossed without a canoe." Lewis and Clark passed through, and so did a railroad line from Chicago.
