I have writen and published a book on the history of my hometown, Fowler, Illinois, entitled "From Rails to Roads - The Story of Fowler, Illinois. It is available for order at the following URL - http://www.lulu.com/content/907483
Fowler is located
in west central Illinois near Quincy (see
map also). Fowler, which has the grand sum of about 200 people, was
born in about 1857 when the railroad came through. Though today it is a
bedroom community of Quincy,
it once was a bustling community unto itself, having a bank, a post office,
three grocery stores, two gas stations, a town doctor, barber, and a newspaper,
called The Fowler Record. The Quincy
Herald-Whig is another good source of information about Fowler. As late
as the 1930s, the train stopped in Fowler 11 times per day. If you
are interested in the history of this small town, please send e-mail to
me by pressing my e-mail address: email@example.com.
(A history page for Adams
County is also available from Infobahn Outfitters.) The house in the
picture above is the one I grew up in. It is located on a hill on the east
edge of Fowler and was built by my great-grandparents.
