Our Story

In the 1670's we were a wilderness area occupied only by an abundance of wildlife and the Sac and Foxes, warring American Indian tribes (originally New Yorkers). They had a chief named Pash-a-popo, we kid you not. By the late 1800's Iowa had moved on from warring to Statehood and it's been a great story with more to be written. People from Iowa represent all walks of life including entertainment, computers, biosciences, agriculture, and entrepreneurship. Can you say Jason Momoa? Yes! Ashton Kutcher, John Wayne, Gene Wilder, Elijah Wood, Brandon Routh, Tennessee Williams, Buffalo Bill, Norman Borlaug, Johnny Carson, and many more.
