Our Iowa Heritage Index: The 2000’s.

As you can see, our growing website Our Iowa Heritage covers a lot of time (pre-1800 to the present) and a lot of people. We’ve written about famous people and the not-so-famous ones as well. Yet, despite a person’s prominence (or lack of it), everybody has a story. And as you read our posts, you’ll hopefully discover that everyone’s story is a good one. So, in order to better find these good stories and details surrounding them, we’ve added this INDEX of HISTORICAL ACCOUNTS to help you along the way. Enjoy your journey.

Our Iowa Heritage: An Introduction. We might suggest you start here! Here’s how & why I got started collecting stamps, coins, and other Iowa memorabilia.

Iowa Celebrates: The 2000’s. Lots of fun Iowa-related commemoratives have been released in these last two decades. I especially like the “Greetings from” stamp series that pays tribute to the colorful penny postcards of old.

My Iowa Art: The Iowa Millennium Art Poster. In 2000, Des Moines Register political cartoonist Brian Duffy created a masterpiece depicting 58 Iowa icons. Check it out and the amazing heritage of political cartooning here in Iowa!

My Iowa Art. OK. So, none of these collectibles will ever be placed in a museum, but for me, they are treasures that speak of my love of Iowa, the University, and everything Hawkeye.

My Iowa Art: The Book Collection. Now, that you’ve seen the art, allow me show you some of our favorite books. From history books to musical biographies to Iowa trivia, here’s our collection. Some, really old. Some, not. Enjoy this trip to our library!
