In the early 1900’s Scott Fisher’s great grandparents moved to Garden Grove, Iowa, to run a brand new railroad hotel. One hundred years later Scott and his wife Julie bought an old railroad hotel, a twin of the one run by his great grandparents, to run as a Bed and Breakfast.

On this edition of Talk of Iowa, host Charity Nebbe speaks with Fisher about his family’s adventures in his new book, “Get a Room: Life in a Rural B&B.”
