Iola, Iowa
Marion County, IA





IOLA
Strictly speaking, Iola was not a town. In 1854 the settlers in the northern part of Clay Township petitioned for a postoffice, and one was established at the house of Joseph Clark, in section 31, township 76, range 18, with Mr. Clark as postmaster. To this postoffice was given the name of Iola. Mr. Clark was succeeded in 1856 by David T. Durham, who held the position until the office was discontinued, the one at Durham taking its place in supplying mail to that part of the county.
