Monowi is a city located in the state of Nebraska in the United States of America (USA), inhabited by a single person; 87-year-old Elsie Eiler.

 

The 54-hectare (540,000-square-foot) city was counted in the cities of Nebraska in the 2010 census, where the woman lives alone.

 

But this Monowi was once densely populated, where as of 1930 it had about 150 people, including shops, restaurants, and prisons.

 

Eiler and her ex-husband, Rudy, were born in the city, went to a local primary school, went on to high school, and took a bus, until a young man joined the U.S. Air Force.

 

Rudy left the United States with his fellow soldiers in France during the Korean War, and Eiler moved to Kansas in search of work. “I did not pay much attention to the city because Monowi was already my home,” she told the BBC.

 

Eiler, a 19-year-old from Kansas, returned to Monowi to marry Rudy, who had retired from the military, working as a petroleum dispatcher. They had two children.

 

The two came up with the idea of ​​renovating their father’s estate, who died in 1960, and began living there in 1971, only that by then Monowi had begun to survive, with economic activities including agriculture and animal husbandry seemingly stalled.

 

It was only after World War II that the population had begun to leave Monowi because there was no hope of life in it. Between 1967 and 1970, grocery stores closed, and the school closed in 1974.

 

Rudy and Eiler’s children also left Monowi, looking for a job, until in 1980 there were only 10 people left, out of 150 who had settled in the 1930s.

 

Twenty years later, Monowi found only two people left; Eiler and Rudy, who also died in 2004. After the widow’s death, the woman decided to stay.

 

The U.S. census confirms that Monowi has one resident, Eiler, who is the mayor who is the receptionist, the treasurer, the bookkeeper and the local bar manager.

 

According to a BBC report annually, Eiler posted an announcement on his bar announcing that there would be a mayoral election in Monowi, and when the time came to vote, she would win the seat.

 

Also every year, Eiler is ordered to raise $ 500 in road and road improvements in Monowi, as he has promised.

 

“When I apply for a liquor and tobacco license every year, they send me to the village secretary, who is me,” she said. So I see myself as a secretary, I sign as a leader, and I give it to the owner of the bar, Me. ”

 

Although Eiler lives alone in Monowi, it seems that he is not alone because it requires her to take short trips with her car to visit friends in other areas, who also visit her frequently to see how she is doing. There are also occasions at her home to celebrate the birthdays of friends and their children.
