In the fall of 2009, an observation/lookout tower was erected on the highest hilltop on Grimes Farm and on one of the highest hilltops in Marshall County. The Tower, named for Mildred Grimes, one of the founding benefactors of Grimes Farm, offers a wonderful view of the Linn Creek Valley and of the rolling farms and hillsides for miles around. It's a perfect destination for a bicycle ride from Marshalltown along the Linn Creek bicycle path.
A project like Mildred's Tower can't get off the ground without the help of a number of fine sponsors and donors. Please help us give a special thanks to...
Be sure to visit Mildred's Tower at Grimes Farm soon!
