1897 Business Directory

2016

The Plat Book and Business Directory, Tama County, Iowa, pub. A.J. Wheeler 1897 has separate Business and Farmers' Directories. The Business Directory includes a general listing, and an assortment of advertisements, in various font styles and sizes, sometimes including graphics. These can be useful for genealogists. I have transcribed the ads, without the graphics and different fonts, but I'm sure that if you find an ad for your great grandfather's business, you will want to look up the original. See further comments, below the table.

More Comments

I have tried to transcribe everything accurately. Please let me know if you find ny errors, even small ones. If you want to see the original, go to Plat Book and Business Directory, Tama County, Iowa, pub. A.J. Wheeler 1897. The Farmers' Directory will be transcribed and placed on another page.

Unlike businesses today, businesses in 1897 Iowa almost always had someone's name(s) associated with them. So I have found it convenient to alphabetize them according to owner/proprietor's names. This is probably best for genealogical purposes. The few businesses without someone's name are in the "Other" category at the bottom of the table. I have left out the ads for businesses that are not in or near Tama County, including many ads for Cornell College, as they are of less value for Tama County genealogy.

There are many obvious spelling mistakes in the original. I have transcribed them as they appear. In cases where a name has two different spellings, if the two are far apart in the table, I have referred one to the other. I transcribed and included multiple ads by O.T. Sanborn and T.W. Matthiesen, because they are all different, and they do give a clearer idea of what was important in the Tama County business community of 1897.
