Wiota

Wiota started with the building of the Chicago Rock Island and Pacific Railroad in 1868. The post office and general store were then established in 1873, followed by the first hardware store in 1876. The first doctor came in 1877 and the town was finally incorporated in 1884. By then it had two general stores, two elevators, a stockyard, lumberyard, harness business, four corn cribs and a saloon.

On Wiota’s main street, you’ll find a great city park perfect for letting kids play, and a wonderful area for a picnic.

This little town offers its residents fast access to Atlantic and Anita, while providing all the benefits of living in a small town. Be sure to check out the Wiota Steakhouse & Lounge reopening in 2015.
