The population was 141 residing in the Village at the 2010 census, In 1870 the railroad passed by Larkinsburg about one mile to the east. The village of Larkinsburg was soon forgotten and a new village named Iola was established.
This website is just one part of our effort to make our information more accessible to you and keep you updated on the happenings.
Village of Iola is committed to preserving its small town family-oriented atmosphere with its unique character.
Those who have visited Iola in prior years as a child have remarkable stories and fond memories. Many of those were from the Old Settlers Picnic that was held every year in August from 1878 until 2016.
