 Southwest View of Kiron and Otter Creek Valley


This picture taken after 1908 as the new tower of the Baptist church is plainly visible.  The view is from the water tower hill looking in a southwesterly direction.  The Lawrence and Norelius houses are visible with the street trees showing good growth.  Down the street is the firehouse with the bell tower. 

Tops of several of the commercial buildings on the main street are clearly visible. The squarish white building is the Kiron Hotel. Across from the hotel and above the dark roof of the Norelius house is the Opera House. The two story building with the outside stairwell on the left wall is the Lundberg Building. Going further left is the Hanson Building. The farm in the tree line in the rear left is the John Ogren farm.
