Caloma, Iowa
Marion County, IA





CALOMA
Located in the northwest quarter of section 29, township 75, range 21, is the little village of Caloma. It is about fifteen miles southwest of Knoxville and only one mile from the Warren County line. A postoffice was established here in 1857, with Daniel F. Smith as the first postmaster. No official plat of Caloma can be found in the public records. Since the introduction of the free rural delivery system the postoffice at Caloma has been discontinued and mail is now carried from Lacona, Warren County. It has a general store and is a trading point for the neighborhood. White Breast, on the Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific, and Lacona, on the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy, are the most convenient railroad stations.
