Ohiowa is situated on the DeWitt and Holredge branch of the B.M.R.R., in the southeastern part of Fillmore county, 15 miles from Geneva, the county seat. It has a population of 600, and is growing rapidly, upward of 50 buildings having been built thus far during the first half of 1890. The Farmers Bank of Fillmore county, with a capital o $25,000, and the Bank of Ohiowa, capital $10,000, are the financial institutions of the place. The two elevators have a capacity each of 20,000 bushels. The products of a large district of country find their way to this point for shipment. A fine opera house, with a seating capacity of 400, has been built and equipped. Also, a fine graded school building, which cost $5,000. Among the building constructed during the past year were three churches—Methodist, Baptist, and German Lutheran, at an aggregate cost of $3,700. The enterprising newspaper of the town, the Ohiowan, has a circulation of 700.
