This booklet has been written for the use and enjoyment of students of Iowa history of all ages. It concentrates upon Polk County and is part of the observance, in 1976, of the Nation's Bicentennial. Polk County Superintendent K. W. (Bill) Miller has assisted with the printing and binding of this booklet. The pictorial pages of early photographs were reproduced and printed by students at Des Mines Tech High School. This booklet is being provided to every elementary and secondary school in Polk County. This booklet hopefully will provide some historical highlights of the settlement and development of Polk County and Des Mines. As we are launched into our second century of progress in Polk County and Des Moines, it is well to look back on our past. We hope this booklet helps to give understanding of our past and that it will serve as a guide in meeting the demands of the present as we go forward to meet the new challenges that face Polk County, Des Mines, and indeed the Nation.
