Rachelle Chase, author of Lost Buxton, will present “Buxton, Iowa: A Coal Mining Town Ahead of Its Time.” In 1900, at a time when Jim Crow, segregation, and the Ku Klux Klan kept blacks and whites separated, residents in Buxton, Iowa—a thriving coal mining town established by Consolidation Coal Company—lived, worked, and went to school side by side.
