Peek into the Past!
Photo from Willennar Genealogy Center Collection
This picture was taken in 1976 by Davis Studio, of four children posing in front of the bikeway sign north of Auburn on the East side of State Road 427 in the area of DeKalb High School. The bikeway that runs between Waterloo and Auburn was built over the old interurban line in one of the first rails-to-trails initiatives in the state.
Check out our Photo Archives for more scenes from the past. People and places are identified by genealogy staff and volunteers using the best resources available. If you have any information about unidentified people and places in our photos, please contact us.
