Oceola Train Station

Here’s the train station in Oceola, Iowa. It was built in 1907 and the ticket office retains many original features, such as ticket windows, wood benches and light fixtures. It was restored in 1970.

Stepping off an Amtrak train here, you enter the heart of the midwest. Oceola is named after a Seminole Indian leader and a black tea together with the name of a god.

Lots of space for each home.

And lots of space outside of the sparse towns.

For the urban traveler, this is the place to come to get in touch with your connection to the planet.
