Before the company town of Kinzua closed in 1978, it was the largest town in Wheeler County. At its peak, the logging town was home to about 700 people, a golf course, a lake full of trout, as well as grocery and department stores. Fossil resident Otis Cody and his father worked for Kinzua before it closed. Cody tells us about life growing up in the company town, and the lasting effects it’s had on the county.
