The Oldest Home In Iowa Is An 1820s Log Cabin And Is Truly Something To Marvel Over

Long before Iowa was a state, a fur trader built a cabin not far from the west bank of the Mississippi in an area that’s now Dubuque. A lot happened in the next two centuries, but the cabin still stands, and it’s now the oldest log cabin west of the Mississippi. The Arriandeaux Cabin is a site you can visit and a trip here will take you back hundreds of years.
