||ILASCO, MO - It must be remembered that
Ilasco as a town was created for the immigrant workers at the Atlas
Portland Cement Company. This picture, taken from the hill above the
town and behind the jail, shows the town's business district at the Marble
Creek Bridge. These businesses supplied most of the personal needs
of the community. In the background, a reminder of the link
between the town and the company, is the large cement plant stock
house. Although the town is now gone, the stock house still stands.
