Northeast Iowa is a special place. It is a rare pocket of the world where history, art, and culture collide with a breathtaking natural landscape to inspire and awe visitors and residents. Nestled among the bluffs, next to bucolic farmland, and along winding rivers are unique historical, art, and cultural treasures that shape the Northeast Iowa region’s sense of place. These sites and items have been carefully preserved and curated by dedicated local individuals and organizations who understand the intrinsic value of these resources. A great opportunity exists to build the capacity for History, Art, and Culture throughout Northeast Iowa on a regional scale.
