A Story of Iowa’s Counties

February 20 @ 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Did you ever wonder about the shapes of our counties? And, what about those Spanish names like Cerro Gordo and Palo Alto? This presentation will begin with the origin of the county concept in America and a brief overview of all of the counties in the United States. The talk will trace how the State of Iowa came to be, from the Louisiana Purchase to our Statehood. The naming of our counties will be explored and some interesting tales will be related concerning many of them.
