Meservey, Iowa

According to Wikipedia: Meservey is a city in Cerro Gordo County, Iowa. It is part of the Mason City Micropolitan Statistical Area. Meservey was founded in 1886, shortly after a railroad line was built connecting Mason City and Fort Dodge. It takes its name from the Meservey Brothers who were railroad employees at this time. The western portion of town was originally known as Kausville, and eventually merged into Meservey, and is still legally known as the "Kausville Addition". As of the census of 2000, there were 252 people living in Meservey.
