Historical Overview of Iowa County...
We welcome you to Iowa County and invite you to experience all we have to offer!

Iowa County derives its name from the Iowa River, which runs through the county, and for the Ioway Indian Tribe. It was a natural gateway to the west. Since the mid-1800's, early pioneers traveled through Iowa County and into the Iowa wilderness. Pioneers and military wagon trains wound their way through oak groves and expanses of tall-grass prairie along the Diamond trail. Settlers followed the Iowa River and English River into the heart of the country, settling on farms and in small towns.

The county seat of Iowa County has always been Marengo. The current courthouse was erected in 1892. It is a two-story, stone building ornamented with turrets and a tower. It was constructed at a cost of $57,608.

Iowa County is bisected by interstate 80 and conveniently close to two of Iowa's major metropolitan areas, Cedar Rapids and Iowa City. It boasts two of the state's leading year-round tourist attractions, the quaint and picturesque Amana Colonies and Tanger Outlet Mall, located in Williamsburg, Iowa adjacent to I-80.

Iowa County is also home of several industries and manufacturers.
