There used to be a sign for the Old Creamery Theatre, but it moved all operations to the Amana Colonies a decade back. Three miles actually takes you through Garrison to E22.

The Clearview mileage sign is a metal one with support bars, similar to those that until now have only been seen at interchanges.

SOUTH End: City limits of Garrison, Benton County

Prior to 1980, 198 went into town and turned west for one block to include the business district on Main Street.
