ECC Museum

ECC Foundation Director Gwen Groen shows some of the items buried away for decades in a vault. A museum is planned to highlight ECC’s people and history.

Union Cemetery

Some of the oldest headstones in Union Cemetery in Iowa Falls are in need of repair or new foundations. The Ladies Social Gathering, which oversees the cemetery, is raising money to fund the repairs.
