TOURS

FABULOUS FORTUNES / "FAR, FAR WEST"
Fabulous Fortunes in the “Far, Far West”: Muscatine, Iowa-”Pearl Button Capital of the World”. Overnight fortunes were made when the Black Hawk Purchase was officially opened to settlement in 1833- west of the Mississippi River. Sodbusters soon discovered that their fortunes were not buried in the ground-but in becoming the chain of supply to the western frontier. The Black Hawk Purchase opened such a settlement boom that twenty-one towns were staked out, overnight, between Davenport and Muscatine. Join us on our bus tour down river and back through time, as we revisit: Antoine LeClaire House Historical Interpretive Center; the Buffalo, Iowa Historical Society Museum; Enjoy lunch on the banks of the Mississippi River near Muscatine’s “Clammer Statue”; Visit the Muscatine History and Industry Museum’s “Pearl Button Capital of the World” exhibit); Tour the Muscatine Art Center; and venture out across the prairies to visit “Winter Bison” farm to view the region’s only free range buffalo herd.
