Palo Alto Township Map
From Andreas Historical Atlas of Iowa 1875
I have copied the Map to PC and enhanced it in this way: The dotted line which indicates The Old Government Road - the route the first settlers travelled - that dotted line I've colored RED dots. Medium Lake & the Des Moines R., along with smaller tributaries, I've colored Blue. --- Matt O'Dell
In Emmetsburg Twsp. Just NW of the Emmetsburg Town plat -
you will see a tiny black spot about middle of Sec No.
