Two of the books in our bookstore provide a wealth of history of Iowa County. This interactive map is meant to compliment those books.
Schools of Iowa County (by Iowa County Bicentennial Education Committee.1976. 142 p. : ill., maps, ports.) is a guide to the school houses that once dotted Iowa County. It includes detailed maps of each township within Iowa County, and every school house that once stood.
Where Have All the Cheese Factories Gone? :The History of the Cheese Factories & Creameries of Iowa County, Wisconsin (Iowa County Historical Society. 2011. 404 p.) is an exhaustive publication about the cheese making industry in Iowa County. It includes detailed maps of each township within Iowa County, and every cheese factory that once stood. Each factory is extensively profiled using historical records, filled in with oral histories and newspaper articles.
