Ticonic is an unincorporated community in Grant Township, Monona County, Iowa, United States.[1] Ticonic is located along County Highway E16 8.2 miles (13.2 km) west of Mapleton.[2]

Education[edit]

The community is within the Maple Valley Anthon-Oto Community School District.[3]

The Ticonic Independent School District, which operated the grade 1-8 Ticonic Independent School, started in the early 1900s. In 1955 Mapleton Community School District, as it was now known, absorbed the Ticonic Independent School District as the latter had a decline in population.[4] The Mapleton Community School District merged into the Maple Valley Community School District in 1961.[5] The Ticonic school closed in 1961, and it was demolished in 1970 as the building had deteriorated.[4] On July 1, 2012 the Maple Valley district consolidated with the Anthon-Oto Community School District to form the new Maple Valley Anthon-Oto district.[6]
