Northeast Iowa History, Art, and Culture Regional Enhancement Plan


Northeast Iowa is a special place. It is a rare pocket of the world where history, art, and culture collide with a breathtaking natural landscape to inspire and awe visitors and residents. Nestled among the bluffs, next to bucolic farmland, and along winding rivers are unique historical, art,and cultural treasures that shape the Northeast Iowa region’s sense of place. These sites and items have been carefully preserved and curated by dedicated local individuals and organizations who understand the intrinsic value of these resources. A great opportunity exists to build the capacity for History, Art, and Culture throughout Northeast Iowa on a regional scale.

Northeast Iowa RC&D is working with partners from across the state to assist in creating, supporting and sustaining an effort to unite the vast array of cultural assets in multi-county regions of Iowa during the next 2016 and 2017. A state-wide planning consortium of Iowa’s RC&D’s, the University of Iowa, and the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs was developed to bring support and assistance to Iowa’s rural communities. This effort is bringing historical societies and sites, artists, and cultural groups together to examine the potential for the region and develop and implement a plan to build the capacity of and enhance history, art, and culture regionally.
