The Counties of Iowa

November 12 @ 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Free

Why does Iowa contain so many regularly-shaped, box-like counties? What about those Spanish names such as Cerro Gordo, Palo Alto, and Buena Vista? The history of the land of Iowa from the Louisiana Purchase to statehood, some tales of over 15 counties, and how Iowa’s counties were named will all be explored.
