The State of Iowa

Iowa is a wonderful state placed between rivers. Better known for its landscape of cornfields and rolling plains, Iowa sits between the iconic Missouri and Mississippi rivers. Its capital, Des Moines, includes incredible landmarks such as the gold-domed 19th-century State Capitol Building or the Pappajohn Sculpture Park.


Louis Jolliet and Jacques Marquette were the first European explorers to visit Iowa, arriving on the Mississippi River in 1673 and discovering several Native American towns. Until 1763, when the French were defeated in the Indian and French War, the region was claimed by the French and consequently formed part of their empire. 

The region was given to Spain by the French, who offered commercial privileges to both British and French businessmen. The state later formed part of Spanish Louisiana until the U.S bought the state of Louisiana, and locals started an agricultural economy based in what is now known as the Corn Belt.

Fun Facts

  1. Corn’s Home!

Iowa is known for being the leading producer of corn in the world. Over 99% of the corn that is produced here is used as corn syrup, corn oil, corn starch, and corn cereal. The kind of corn that is produced in Iowa is called field corn, which is yellow corn that is commonly harvested during the fall and forms different dents on the kernel when it dries up. 

  1. The Hawkeye State

Iowa has commonly been nicknamed the Hawkeye State due to the newspaper publisher James Edwards and Judge David, who changed the name of the local’s newspaper to “Hawk-Eye and Iowa-Patriot”. This was done to honor the Sauk leader, who was known as Chief Black Hawk. The name was approved by the territorial officers in the year 1838.

Do you know who invented sliced bread? Iowan Otto Rohwedder designed a device that would slice and wrap bread back in 1927. His first machine was sold to Frank Bench, an owner of a baking company in Missouri, and later, in 1928, the first sliced bread was sold. Nowadays, sliced bread is one of the most demanded food products on the shelves.
