I need to start the day by wising Anders a happy birthday. Happy birthday Anders!
I hope your birthday is as amazing as you want it to be!
A few weeks back I loaded up into the car with my Mom and Teresa as they joined me as I went around and harvested the town signs in Wright County.
Here are some facts about Wright County:
+ Wright County is a county in the U.S. state of Iowa. As of the 2010 census, the population was 13,229.
+ The county seat is Clarion.
+ The county organization became effective in January 1851, and is believed to be named either after Silas Wright, a governor of New York, or Joseph Albert Wright, a governor of Indiana.
Here is a look at the Wright County Photo Map:
Boundaries approximate at best.
And with Wright County completed, this is the updated Photography 139 Conquest Map:
11 counties completed. 11.1% of the state conquered.
Here are the Wright County Signs:
Eagle Grove, Iowa
Eagle Grove – Chamber of Commerce – Summerfest – June 18-20
Wright County only has 8 communities, but it has a solid set of signs top to bottom. There isn’t any that I think are terrible, with maybe the exception of Eagle Grove. Their sign is more of an advertisement for the town festival. Which is fine, but the sign doesn’t even welcome you to town.
Dows and Woolstock must have a healthy rivalry. A friendly rivalry though. Cause one is a “Friendly Community” and the other is a “Friendly Town”. I also really like Galt’s sign. It is a little surprising that a town of 32 has such a nice sign. There must be some money in that town. There probably is, because they murderize a lot of chickens in that town. No joke, 15 million chickens in that town. Also lots of salmonella in that town. But you probably don’t want to talk about having to recall 380 million eggs due to salmonella on your town sign. However, their can only be one Best in Show and it goes to:
Wright County Best in Show – Woolstock, Iowa
We will discuss George Reeves when I publish the auxiliary images from this road trip. I can say though, thanks to Jodie Cue for the tip on Woolstock.
There are also a couple towns with alternate town signs:
Belmond – Alternate
Also, on the way back home to Boone, I discovered that Roland had updated their Gary Thompson sign:
The Roland Rocket
Here is the current list of Best in Shows:
Best in Show – Boone County
No change to the BENNETT TOWN SIGN POWER RANKINGS:
The next county we will visit is Jasper County.
