The history of Iowa City

Iowa City was created by an act of Legislative Assembly of the Iowa Territory on January 21, 1839, fulfilling the desire of Governor Robert Lucas to move the capital out of Burlington and closer to the center of the territory. Founded in 1847, today's University of Iowa is recognized as one of the nation's top public universities, offering more than 100 areas of study for its 29,000 students. The institution's Writers' Workshop is internationally acclaimed, having fostered the creative talents of Ray Bradbury, Flannery O'Connor, Jane Smiley, and Kurt Vonnegut.
