Iowan Victorian Hamlet with Mississippi River Views

Fort Madison’s brick streets and Victorian architecture are the perfect backdrop to take you through time for an exploration of the history of this Great River Road community. Back when Iowa was just an uncharted territory, Fort Madison was the start of American inroads into the region.

Summer time reenactments, tours, and demonstrations help immerse you into the story of this period replica. Rebuilt near the original site on the Mississippi, this Fort once played host to the local Native tribes, acting as a trading post before being engulfed in the War of 1812. Open seasonally.
