Weber’s Fun Facts – The Old Stone Capitol.

(BH-021) In 1976, the Iowa City Lion’s Club took it upon themselves to publish a book by one of its long-time members. The book was called Irving Weber’s Iowa City and it included 102 short stories that had originally been published by the Iowa City Press Citizen. In remembrance of Mr. Iowa City – here is our tip of the old hat to Weber’s first article from his first book – written in a quiz format – focusing on the most prominent landmark in Iowa City… the Old Stone Capitol.
