A stop in the rural farming town of Brandon will position you exactly at the half way mark on the 52 mi Cedar Valley Nature Trail where biking/hiking and much more, is enjoyed by all nature lovers. A mile away is interstate 380 which leads to Cedar Rapids and Iowa City.
This small community is part of the Independence school district, and supports two churches, a fire station, post office, city hall, and a community center. Denton Castings Company Inc. makes its home there also.
Services to the town are, Interstate Power & Light Company, Northern Natural Gas and Windstream (telecommunications).
Hill Billy Days are celebrated in July, Cowboy Breakfasts in September and every December a Christmas event is held.
If you have always wanted to live in a small community with big pride this is the town for you!
