The State of Iowa is located just east of Illinois, along the Mississippi River, in what is known as the "American Heartland." Its name comes from the Loway Indians who were in the area when the Europeans explored there.
Iowa was once part of the French colony of New France, part of the Louisiana Purchase. Explorers who came up the Mississippi river principally settled it. Most of these people were French and claimed much of these lands for their country. The French owned it until 1763. After the French were defeated in the French and Indian war, France transferred ownership to Spain. Spain had very little claim to it, and in 1803 it became part of the United States via the Louisiana Purchase. The region was popular during that time for fur trading, and the French and British established trading post all along the Mississippi River, including Iowa.
After the area became a territory in 1838, residents quickly began to want to become a state. On December 28, 1846, that dream became true. President Polk signed the paperwork, and Iowa became a state.
Iowa has the moniker, the "Food Capital of the World." The state is known for its corn production. The tallgrass prairie and savanna upland areas are conducive to agriculture. This leads to crops covering 60% of the states. In recent times, livestock facilities have increased in Iowa. Hay and other support crops help because they are plentiful. Iowa is like most Midwestern states. It has a humid climate. Daytime temperatures in the summer reach 90 degrees F with high humidity. Winters can get down to -18 below zero.
Although Iowa is primarily agrarian, it has moved to more of an urban society in recent years. CNBC rated Iowa as the sixth best state, in the "Top States for Business in 2010."
