Audubon Iowa is a quirky little town. I could have spent all day there taking photographs of all the slightly "off" things. From the black squirrels to the building with a deer head poking around a third floor window. It comes off like the kind of town they would use to make a show like Northern Exposure or Gilmore Girls.
|This is "Albert the Bull". Why is there a 30 foot tall bull on the way into town? Who cares!|
|Another "blocky" courthouse.|
|an interesting clock|
Guthrie County is home to the last exurbs beyond Des Moines's western suburbs. Panora is a nice little community and home to the summer camp I attended as a child and that my own kids now attend. A little west of Panora is the county seat of Guthrie Center. Typically 1960's courthouses are pretty blah but this one manages to have a little character with it's Bauhaus leanings.
|The building was designed by Dougher, Frevert, and Ramsey who later would morph into Frevert Ramsey Kobes and employ my father (Charles Bergman) as an architect for some projects.|
|Looks like a lab building from Iowa State Univerisity|
