Cedar Falls, Iowa (Images of America) by Brian C. Collins



Located in northeast Iowa along the Cedar River, the city of Cedar Falls is known as the “Garden City” of Iowa due to its lovely tree-lined streets and well-kept homes. Of special interest to those familiar with the city will be the many photographs of buildings that have been torn down or greatly altered from their original form. The section entitled “Main Street, the Heart of the City,” traces the evolution of this central boulevard of the city from a dusty, dirt street to a lovely Victorian avenue, complete with cast-iron lamp posts, cobblestone streets, and a trolley line. Most of all, people familiar with Cedar Falls today, as well as visitors and former residents, will enjoy seeing the evolution of this Midwestern town from a tiny pioneer settlement to a modern industrial city.
