This webpage should be a delight to many people who either lived here in Muscatine County or had relatives here at one time. There are many photo's here showing people and businesses as they looked back in 1891. The following tables are in numerical order and not in alphabetical order, so keep this in mind while scrolling down this webpage. The information here was submitted to us by Norma Rogers, who scanned almost this entire book. Dave Dunston, Webmaster, converted this information over to html coding so it could be viewed on the internet. A big THANK-YOU goes out to Norma Rogers for taking the time to send me this information. We are sure everyone will enjoy reading it and viewing the various photos. ENJOY!!
