Walcott's interchange on Interstate 80 is home to an enormous complex of restaurants, motels, truck stops including the Iowa 80 truck stop which is the worlds largest.
Walcott is a city of 2.96 square miles in the state of Iowa. In 2000 its population was1529, in 2010 it was 1629 and by 2013 it had dropped to 1623. This is a growth of 6.2% since 2000.
On leaving the interstate and and entering the city there are two delightful side by side brick and stone buildings.
A bit further down the street there is further evidence of skilled craftsman working with brick and stone.
Finally, what was once a theater and now a cafe.
Walcott is one of the few cities that has a positive growth and is worthy of another visit.
