See www.uwosh.edu/filmandhistory/documentary/americanhistory2/small-town.php regarding a Cold War era film "Small Town, USA (U.S. Information Service/Pathescope Company of America/Eurovision, 1957). 30 min. This documentary, intended for
foreign audiences during the Cold War and housed at the Iowa State University archives, presents a pastoral view of a small town in the heartland of America--Anamosa, Iowa--dependent on agriculture for its existence." Based on this prior use, it would seem to me to have been a very logical choice for a town slogan.
