Due to the number of positive COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations across the country and locally, Linn County has closed most buildings to the public to help reduce community spread of the virus and to help ensure continuity of County services.
In 2019, the Linn County Historic Preservation Commission and Wapsi Valley Archaeology partnered to nominate the Coggon Commercial Historic District to the National Register of Historic Places. A story map was created during that nomination process to help the community of Coggon visually convey a piece of its history and the role it played in making Linn County what it is today. The nomination is still under review by the National Park Service.
If your community or organization is interested in creating a similar story map to tell your particular part of Linn County’s history, please contact the Linn County Historic Preservation Commission at 319-892-5130.
