Urban renewal in the heart of the county STEPHANIE OGREN WORLD-HERALD NEWS SERVICE
Bob Mundt, president and CEO of the Council Bluffs Area Chamber of Commerce, said his goal is to make the Council Bluffs Historic 100 Block of West Broadway – a stretch of road in the center of town – a “destination location.” “I’m not sure that we’re trying to duplicate (Omaha’s) Old Market,” he said, but added that he wants to craft a place that people want to visit. He envisions a place “where people can say, ‘Let’s go down to the 100 Block – we’ll spend the evening down there, we’ll have dinner, we’ll go out and entertain ourselves a little bit,’” he said. “You do that by developing reasons for people to come down: unique shops, unique opportunities, a place to meet your friends, a place where you can come and be comfortable and meet new people and those types of things. That’s really kind of the vibe we’re trying to get out into the community.” With its bars, trendy restaurants and an art gallery, the 100 block is on
its way to becoming the place to go in Council Bluffs. “The 100 block is a great block. We felt we were part of it from the start,” said Robert Gilmer, owner of Dixie Quicks Restaurant and RNG Gallery, located in the Hughes-Iron building. Gilmer moved both businesses to Council Bluffs from Omaha. “Council Bluffs has been wonderful for us, and I truly believe it has been a win-win-win situation for us, Council Bluffs and Omaha. The 100 Block is a great model for urban renewal. I believe that Council Bluffs is going through a large growth period, and it is nice to be a part of it.” Revitalization of the block has been about 10 years in the making, Mundt said. The process began when the north side historic district was listed on the National Register of Historical Places in 2002. Mundt said this kind of renovation is part of a national movement toward refocusing on the core of a community. It seems to be working. The area now boasts pub crawls and other activities, such as the recent Savor the Flavor event. That event offered a cel-
ebration of craft beer, fine wine, gourmet food, local art and live music. Businesses along the 100 block contributed to the event, as did the Bluffs Arts Council and Doll Distributing. Mundt said the rejuvenation is giving people a reason to move their offices downtown. “We probably won’t be a huge retail center downtown, but we can be a good professional center and a good government center and maybe have some interspersed specialty retail shops.” Outdoor seating at the downtown restaurants has generated a positive reaction, he said. “It’s new to Council Bluffs, at least in the downtown area, and I think that kind of brings a different kind of ambience to the area when you can drive down the streets and see people out on the sidewalk eating,” he said. “I think it added some flair to the downtown that wasn’t there before.” Mundt said he wants to hold activities that will bring a critical mass of people downtown. “That’s kind of our long-term thinking of how we will redevelop our core.”

Fair draws fans from 4 counties NEAL GEBHARD WORLD-HERALD NEWS SERVICE
DUNLAP – Dunlap is home to a fair like no other. That’s because this fair covers four counties, bringing in a highly competitive line of livestock shows and a variety of fun events. The 4 County Fair is an independent fair that raises its money on its own. Fair President Bob Buresh said the fair has been a success for 77 years because it can offer more prize money and draws its audiences from a larger area. The four counties involved are Crawford, Harrison, Monona and Shelby. The livestock shows offer competitors in the four counties a chance to show their stock against a broader range of entries prior to the state fair. In recent years, the shows have expanded to include poultry and rabbits, providing competitions for younger participants. Events beyond livestock shows draw crowds to the 4 County Fair. The tractor pull brings in 100 competitors, some from more than 100 miles away. There also are ATV drag races and a Team Penning

Why archeaologists dig Mills County NEAL GEBHARD WORLD-HERALD NEWS SERVICE
GLENWOOD – “You always walk to the left in an earth lodge,” Judy Dashner said as visitors ducked beneath the low timbers holding up the ceiling of the replica earth lodge. The space is dark, a bit musty but spacious. It has to be: Nearly 20 people lived inside earth lodges made by past Native American cultures. Dashner, a board member of the Mills County Historical Society, leads tours through the replica, which was designed and built with insight from local Native American tribes and University of Nebraska-Lincoln archaeologists. Dashner, who volunteers at the Mills County Historical Museum, is a caretaker of its extensive collection of artifacts from past cultures. Arrowheads dating back 7,000 years have been found in Mills County, collected through the years by surveyors and amateur archaeologists. Lodges were first discovered in Mills County when Highway 34 was built. Highway construction was halted and archaeologists began finding additional ancient settlements, dating them to A.D. 900. More than 200 lodges have been found in the area. About 900 acres of land is now under protection as archaeologists excavate and examine their findings.

Earth lodges were first discovered in Mills County when Highway 34 was built. Highway construction was halted and archaeologists began finding additional ancient settlements, dating them to A.D. 900. More than 200 lodges have been found in the area. What is clear, said Dashner and Carrie Merritt, president of the historical society, is that there once was an established culture here, with trade routes along the Missouri and Platte Rivers. The earth lodge replica is the second of its kind and more authentic than the first. The life span of an
earth lodge is anywhere from 10 to 14 years before it must be burned and remade. To Merritt and Dashner, respecting past cultures is important for modern residents of the area. “We need to know the history and understand the people who were here before us,” Merritt said.

Our organizations sponsor many great events during the year: AMVETS June Walk ~ Fathers Day Weekend Optimists Car Show ~ 1st Sunday of August Antique Fall Festival ~ 3rd Weekend of September Christmas Walk ~ Thanksgiving Weekend Walnut was established in 1871. The downtown area, after fires claimed both sides of the business district, was rebuilt in brick in the late 1800s; those structures remain and in some cases still carry the same type of merchandise as they did a century ago. Today these buildings are filled with antiques & specialty shops. In addition, you will find a bakery and other businesses -- each with its own unique character. The “Walnut Bureau” first published in 1878 and as “The Walnut News” is still printed weekly. Rolling Hills Bank & Trust is Walnut's only building on the National Register of Historic Places. Once a hub for entertainment, the Walnut Opera House, built in 1899, still stands on Antique City Drive today.
