Video: Made in Iowa

In 2011, Webster City, Iowa, experienced a massive economic shift after the town’s large appliance manufacturing plant shut down. This left many jobless and impacted local business, including the closing of the town’s beloved, historic movie theater. But the community refused to let their town die—and “Made in Iowa” tells the story of how small business helped Webster City save itself.

Running time: 12 minutes.
