In the 1920’s the Railroad wanted to build a line through Dallas, Iowa, but city elders refused comply with the railroad’s demands.  Mr. Melcher of the railroad decided to found his own town just a mile south and the Dallas- Melcher rivalry was born.  On today's "Talk of Iowa" we begin our summer series on Iowa towns with rivalries.
