Travel - Ida Grove

Are you a fan of castles? The prince and princess kind? So was Byron Godberson of Ida Grove. He turned any building he got his hands on into a castle. And since he was rolling in dough (from his marine and small farm equipment businesses), this turned out to be quite a few buildings. A mall, skating rink, newspaper office, ice cream shop, drugstore all got the Magic Kingdom treatment. The man's home has a moat, and drawbridge. Godberson was not only stylish, he was safe. The non-retail establishments are privately owned, so no tours, but you can still get an eyeful from outside!
More on the castles.
