Iowa Farm in 2010 and 1947

Last Wednesday, I shared the ariel photo of my homeplace farm in Iowa in 1947. I'll show it again, below. Today, here is the view of the same land, now called corner of B Ave. and 300th Street, near Coon Rapids, Iowa, via Google Maps.

Here is the photo from last week, for comparison!


The house and buildings, as well as the trees are gone... there are grain bins, a large metal building and a work area - with a big sign with the name of the current family owners.

Thanks to Amy at We Tree and for reminding us of the usefulness of Google maps in our genealogy research.
Families are Forever!  ;-)
