Lakeside Ballroom, Guttenberg, Iowa
Lakeside Ballroom, Guttenberg, Iowa

The ballroom was built in 1927. The big bands would make a stop here on their circle from Chicago, through Iowa, the Dakotas, Minnesota and back to Chicago.  The ballroom is now a setting for weddings and banquets, and a restaurant.
