Kellogg, Iowa

Kellogg, Iowa

Nestled on the side of a hill, the community of Kellogg, Iowa, would like to invite visitors to view the results of what a small town with a big dream can do, boasting the largest street auction in Iowa held annually in April. Also, one of Kellogg\'s most notable features is the six-building Kellogg Museum complex. Its main building is the former Simpson Hotel, constructed in 1909. The museum complex also boasts an original one-room schoolhouse and a country church.

Kellogg was formed in September 1865, and prospered with the coming of the train in 1866. The railroad was designated a station on the line. The track ended here for several years, returning east by using a round-table.
