31. DUBUQUE COUNTY, IOWA

 

Section I: History and Geography


History

 

Dubuque County and the City of Dubuque are named after Julian Dubuque, a French Canadian fur trader who settled in the area in the 1780’s.  The area has the distinction of having been under control of five countries.  France made the first claim in 1674.  The claim was disputed by the English.  At the settlement of the French and Indian War in 1763, France ceded the land to Spain.  Then in 1800 the land was turned back to France.  In 1803, the land was sold by France to the United States as a part of the Louisiana Purchase.

 

Dubuque County was in that portion of Iowa originally known as the “Black Hawk Purchase”, which on June 1, 1833 was opened to white settlement.  In 1834 the “Black Hawk Purchase” was attached to the Territory of Michigan.  It was divided into the counties of Dubuque and Des Moines.  In 1836 Dubuque and Des Moines Counties were attached to the territory of Wisconsin.  In September 1837, Dubuque County was divided into Clinton, Dubuque, Delaware, Jackson and Jones Counties and portions of Benton, Buchanan, Cedar, Clayton, Fayette, Johnson, Keokuk, Lynn and Scott Counties.  In 1838 this area became the Territory of Iowa.

 

In the 1780’s through the 1820’s the Mesquakie Indians extensively mined and smelted lead within the area.  In 1822, the federal government licensed white settlers to mine the lead.  This paved the way for a lead rush.  The settlement became the city of Dubuque in 1833, making it the oldest city in Iowa. Dubuque has the distinction of having the oldest church and oldest newspaper published in what was to become Iowa.

 

Boundaries

 

Dubuque County is located in northeast Iowa on the Mississippi River.  It is surrounded by the following counties: West: Delaware Co.; North: Clayton Co.; East: Grant County, Wisconsin and Jo Davies Co., Illinois; South: Jackson and Jones Counties.
