"Homecoming" in Mason City this weekend

MASON CITY - - Although the Lincoln Town Site company named this town Mason after Judge O. P. Mason of Lincoln, the post office refused to accept that name because it could be too easily confused with Macon. So, the railroad referred to it as Mason and the post office became known as Mason City.
