A dramatic decline in the number of small, family-owned farms in and around this southwestern Iowa town has left it with just 149 residents.

Right now, there are just a few lots available. Those interested simply have to submit a proposed floor plan for their house—no trailers, please. You might even qualify for down-payment assistance for your home's construction costs.
