The story of real estate in Cedar Rapids has to include Al Capone, who used to frequent a certain supper club a few miles outside town back in the 20s.  It’s said when things got too hot in Chicago, he and his boys would light out for the countryside and the relative quiet of Cedar Rapids.  The place is still open if you want to look for ghosts. Oatmeal, engineers, the occasional Prohibition bootlegger…that’s our town.
