Archer Daniels Midland plant and not much else.
As we were driving through, I noticed again that the highways out here follow the old railroad routes. It's interesting to think about how influential the railroads were when all of these little towns were first formed, more than a century ago. And their influence continues even today, as we still take the same paths through these huge, open spaces.
Everything from commerce to travel to social interaction is still dominated by the ghosts of those old iron horses.
