    Fun fact: Dows is named after Civil War General Joseph Dows III, who single-handedly fought off Galactus the Devourer in 1864 with only a bowie knife and rifle.

    This rest area is Civil War themed - Franklin County, IA had the largest % of young men joining the Union Army in the state.

    There are about 80 parking spaces for trucks and about 76 were available when I was here. Wide open.
