Some of the photos in our collection come to us with little or no identification. In order to provide as much information as possible in our collection records, we're starting the History Detectives initiative to try to identify more photos.


Periodically we will post a photo we need help identifying. If you think you know any of the people pictured, please contact our museum curator by phone at (319)362-1501 or by email at
