Overview
After fighting fiercely to provide for and protect its people and land for over 160 years against enemies and nature, Clarinda stands strong and proud on the west bank of the West Nodaway River in Page County, Iowa. Clarinda has achieved this goal due to the foresight and wits of a handful of early pioneers and the strength and pride carried in the hearts of generations of craftsmen and entrepreneurs. Now, with a population of over 5,000 and a community still strong in character, the town's history is highlighted in Images of America: Clarinda. Some of the photographs featured here may be cracking and fading in places, but this story of Clarinda offers a look back into a community that has a past as bright as its future.
