Did You Know? 1854.

Maps help us navigate our way through life. Here is one of those many maps the good citizens of Iowa City/Johnson County have used over the last 200 years to navigate around this community nestled in the Iowa River valley.

In 1854, a beautiful map of Iowa City was compiled and drawn by J. H. Millar. It featured twelve amazing sketches created by Iowa City artist, George H. Yewell.
