City of Junction City
Junction City has a railroading past that's led to a commuting, manufacturing and farming present. It is a historic railroad town with a Scandinavian overlay, recast in recent decades as a manufacturing center and a home for commuting breadwinners who earn their livelihood elsewhere while enjoying the pleasures of small town living.
