Story City had a large celebration planned for the 4th of July in 1919. A full page ad was placed in the Herald a week prior to the 4th describing all of the activities planned. These included a parade, an oration by Rev. Dr. Kirbye of Des Moines, several musical acts, fireworks, and a variety of sports including a baseball game between Story City and Boone and a tug-of-war between the soldiers of Roland and Story City. Check out the Herald clippings below for more detailed information on how Story City celebrated the 4th of July 100 years ago.
