History[edite | modifier le wikicode]

Atlantic, Iowa Rock Island Depot
Gingery Log cabin, Atlantic, Iowa

Atlantic was founded in October 1868 by Franklin H. Whitney, B.F. Allen, John P. Cook, Connie F. Beemer, and others. While historians cannot agree how Atlantic got its name, local legend tells that the founding fathers estimated that the town was about halfway between the Pacific Ocean and the Atlantic Ocean, so it lead them to flip a coin and, clearly, Atlantic won. The nearby Rock Island Railroad was important in deciding the actual location of the town, and to this day, the old depot sits at the north end of Chestnut Street. Today, the old depot serves as the offices of the Chamber of Commerce.[1]

Modèl:Quote
Another story told about Atlantic is the way main street was located. Someone asked Whitney where it should be placed. He marked the center at current day 6th and Chestnut and then plowed two furrows a Modèl:Convert apart all the way up to the railroad, just north of Second Street.[1]
