I'm assumeing of corse , but a Fansler of a
bygone era , went to the trouble to plat out
a town , draw lines and go to where ever to register it IN IOWA , about 40 miles West
Northwest of Des Moines , a small town , I
understand it's not there anymore , the
person that told me about it , said he went
with a girl from Fansler , she told him the
town is dying , the postal service had pulled
the post office out , could not find any one
to keep it open .
Don't run out to by a map to see it , it's
not in all map's , I found out about the town
in the late 1960's and begin to look at Iowa
map's , can't tell you how many I looked at
and found one , It's a 1972 Standard Oil map
a Summer-Fall , Rea White and Blue cover .
If you find a map and you think it may be in
there , Find Des Moines , take I-80 west
Casey , jump off there , take 25 North to Guthrie Center , about 5 miles North of
Guthrie Center looks to be a Blacktop looks
to be 3 to 5 miles back East , would't be
supprised to see welcome to Fansler on both
side's of the sign .
If anyone has been there E-mail me and make
me eat my word's ( should have made them
sweet , just in case I have to eat them )tell
me it's a large town busting at the seam's ,
I can't bring myself to go that far North ,I
was in Centerville area in Feb. and that is
just across the Missouri Border about 50
Miles and no one need's to be there in the
Winter Month's . Even the weather could
change in July . Can you tell I'm a Summer
person . Thanks for reading this .
