A brief history...

Linn Grove is a city in Buena Vista County, Iowa, United States. The population was 163 at the time of the 2020 census. 

The nearby Chan-Ya-Ta Site contains the remains of a 1000-year-old prehistoric village, and is on the National Register of Historic Places. 

A post office called Linn Grove has been in operation since 1877. 

Linn Grove was named for a grove of linden trees near the town site.

Sioux Central Community School District serves the community. Previously it was served by the Linn Grove School District. In the early 1960s it consolidated with the Peterson School District to form the Sioux Valley School District. On July 1, 1993 the Sioux Valley district merged with the Sioux Rapids-Rembrandt School District to form the Sioux Central district.

The Slagle Building is getting updated. We have installed new steel over the exterior of the building and are now looking for bids from licensed contractors (must be insured) for repair and extension of the deck on the building. 

We are looking to extend the deck to wrap around to the north side of the building, with an approx. 16’ wide deck.
