Eldon Riverfront

This site was the original location of J P Strother Construction Company. John Paul Strother was a longtime Southern Iowa highway contractor and civic leader. He established the Wapello County Foundation in 1981 to provide for the future well being of the citizens of Wapello County. Income earned by the foundation is given as charitable grants each year. The City of Eldon has benefitted [sic] significantly from the generosity of Mr. Strother.
The bricks embedded in the base of this memorial are from the office building of J P Strother Construction Company.
"He was a man of integrity and a man of his word and a handshake was a contract for him."
