Just a snippet: MOOREHEAD PARK - Once the original site of Ida Grove, Moorehead Park is an area proud of it’s history. In the early 1850’s, the Moorehead family came to settle in what has now become the park. Ruts from the early stagecoach are still obvious near the old (now refurbished) stagecoach inn. The stagecoach barn still stands nearby. It’s hand-hewn and wood pegged timbers display what life was like so long ago. To compliment the historical aspect of the park, the Ida County Historical Society has relocated the original Grant Center Schoolhouse on the property. The schoolhouse is utilized every year as elementary children from the region.
