    Tabor has a very nice Veterans’ Memorials on the grounds of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Building listing all those who have served in the nation's military from the town. I feel it is important to remember the contributions and sacrifices made by our military in the preservation of our freedom and way of life.

    Tabor has a nice little historic district with a few buildings of historical and/or architectural interest. Three buildings in Tabor and the Tabor Antislavery Historic District are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. There is also a neat mural here depicting the town's history as aa agricultural, Christian, and anti-slavery town.

    Tabor is a town of about 1000 (unchanged since 2000) located along US Highway 275 in both Fremont and Mills Counties in Southwestern Iowa not far from the Nebraska Border. Tabor was founded in 1853 by a group of Christian Clergy who were also abolitionists (opposed to slavery). They also founded a Christian College which has become Tabor College. The name Tabor comes from the biblical name of a hill near Nazareth.

    Admittedly, this tip has a limited audience. Veterans of Foreign Wars Clubs are only open to veterans of the U.S. Military and their guests (I'd be happy to take you). I did not even get to go in here because it was closed when I was in town but I met a couple of members and they invited me to come sometime. They were a couple of friendly guys.
