You can find dozens of structures like that in the Ozarks. Abandoned houses and barns are plentiful.

If you walk in and find a stash of marijuana plants all bundled up, stop, back out of the house, and run like a mo-fo. Me and a buddy found a house like that used for storing pot plants and the whole thing was booby-trapped with grenades. Actual freaking OD Army-issue grenades. We freaked!!!

Lots of small towns in Iowa are dying a slow death.

I grew up in Danville, right down 34. Danville seems to be doing okay, but there are lots of little "towns" that are just losing people.

The Mississippi River flood a few years ago wiped out at least two or three small towns that I can remember down in the Bottoms, like Oakville, where my Dad grew up.

Good to see that the information below is capturing the fact that Chief Black Hawk's name is two words.

Putative Black Hawk grave at Iowaville Cemetery. There are conflicting accounts about what happened to his remains.



Black Hawk Memorial Plaque at Iowaville Cemetery.


After his tour of the east, Black Hawk lived with the Sauk along the Iowa River and later the Des Moines River near Iowaville[37] in what is now southeast Iowa. At the end of his life he attempted reconciliation with both the whites he had fought and with his Sauk rivals, including Keokuk.
It has pleased the Great Spirit that I am here today— I have eaten with my white friends. The earth is our mother— we are now on it, with the Great spirit above us; it is good. I hope we are all friends here. A few winters ago I was fighting against you. I did wrong, perhaps, but that is past—it is buried—let it be forgotten. Rock River was a beautiful country. I liked my towns, my cornfields and the home of my people. I fought for it. It is now yours. Keep it as we did— it will produce you good crops.
I thank the Great Spirit that I am now friendly with my white brethren. We are here together, we have eaten together; we are friends; it is his wish and mine. I thank you for your friendship.
I was once a great warrior; I am now poor. Keokuk has been the cause of my present situation; but I do not attach blame to him. I am now old. I have looked upon the Mississippi since I have been a child. I love the great river. I have dwelt upon its banks from the time I was an infant. I look upon it now. I shake hands with you, and as it is my wish, I hope you are my friends.
—--Address by Black Hawk, July 4, 1838, at Fort Madison.[38]
Black Hawk died on October 3, 1838 after two weeks of illness, and was buried on the farm of his friend James Jordan on the north bank of the Des Moines River in Davis County.
In July 1839, his remains were stolen by James Turner, who prepared his skeleton for exhibition. Black Hawk’s sons Nashashuk and Gamesett went to Governor Robert Lucas of Iowa Territory, who used his influence to bring the bones to security in his offices in Burlington. With the permission of Black Hawk's sons, the remains were held by the Burlington Geological and Historical Society. When the Society's building burned down in 1855, Black Hawk’s remains were destroyed.[39]
An alternative story is that Lucas passed Black Hawk's bones to a Burlington physician, Enos Lowe, who left them to his partner, Dr. McLaurens. Eventually workers found the bones left by McLaurens after he moved to California. They buried the remains in a potter's grave in Aspen Grove Cemetery in Burlington.[40]
