TO WHERE IOWA STARTED. As Mayor, and on behalf of the 58,000 residents of Dubuque, I thank you for your interest in Iowa’s first city…our “Masterpiece on the Mississippi!” Dubuque is considered the “birthplace of Iowa” and features a rich history, interesting architecture, a thriving downtown and riverfront, and abundant natural beauty. In addition to excellent accommodations and conference settings, Dubuque features breath-taking views from Eagle Point Park and the Port of Dubuque’s Mississippi River Walk, award-winning restaurants, charming shops, art and river history museums, elegant turn-of-the-century homes, a revitalized millwork district, and many other attractions.

MAYOR ROY D. BUOL Roy D. Buol was first elected to a four year term as Mayor of Dubuque, Iowa, in November 2005. He is a Dubuque native and a 30-year retired employee of John Deere Dubuque Works. Mayor Buol and his wife, Deborah, are parents of four children and grandparents of 10.

Dubuque has been recognized among the top cities in the Midwest to raise a family, have a meaningful career, start or grow a business, and enjoy life! Other important recognitions include the coveted Outstanding Tourism Community of the Year award from the State of Iowa and the All-America City designation from the National Civic League -- four times in just 10 years! Our community was honored to be named one of the 2013 10 Great Places to Live by Kiplinger’s Personal Finance. In 2010, Forbes recognized Dubuque as the Best Small City to Raise a Family, and in 2008 the U.S. Conference of Mayors selected Dubuque as the Most Livable Small City in the nation! I invite you to visit Dubuque soon and enjoy all the amenities our All-America City has to share! Sincerely,

Roy D. Buol 1) LORAS COLLEGE (WILKIE, WILLIAM E., DUBUQUE ON THE MISSISSIPPI 1788-1988, DUBUQUE, 1987.)

Things You Should Know

1: DUBUQUE WAS FOUNDED IN 1833 That is 13 years before the state of Iowa! The first permanent settler to the area was a French-Canadian fur trader named Julien Dubuque who befriended the Mesquakie Tribe upon his arrival. Dubuque has a unique past, from the first brewery in Iowa to the first place of worship in Iowa. (Beer lovers, rejoice!)

2: DUBUQUE IS A SMALL BIG CITY 57,637 people call Dubuque home. The top 3 employers of Dubuque include the Dubuque Community School District, John Deere Dubuque Works, and Mercy Medical Center. (According to the 2010 U.S. Census)

3: THERE IS A THREE STATE VIEW Dubuque is located along the Mississippi River bordering Illinois & Wisconsin. See all three states at the world’s shortest, steepest, railway, the Fenelon Place Elevator.

4: SPRING IS THE TIME TO GET OUTSIDE Dubuque comes to life in the spring. Take a hike through the Mines of Spain or watch the thawing river bustle with river traffic at Lock & Dam #11. (Tip: Visit Eagle Point Park for an elevated view of Lock & Dam #11.) Don't miss the Dubuque Arboretum & Botanical Gardens, Crystal Lake Cave, Sky Tours Zipline, or Four Mounds Ropes Course in the spring.

5: SUMMERTIME = RIVERTIME Where can you find us on the weekends? On the Mississippi River. Rent a pontoon from American Marine, pack your towel and catch some rays on the beach at Finley’s Landing, or grab a bite to eat at Catfish Charlie’s riverside restaurant (complete with outdoor patio.) Don't miss the American Lady Yacht Cruises, S.W.A.T. River Tours, or National Mississippi River Museum & Aquarium in the summer.

6: FALL IS THE MOST COLORFUL TIME OF YEAR Dubuque is blessed to have limestone bluffs that go on for miles and in the fall, these vistas turn every vibrant shade of autumn imaginable. Peak color usually takes place the weekend closest to October 10. Stroll through Iowa’s longest running Farmers’ Market, go pumpkin pickin’ at local farms, or sip on a pumpkin spice latte. Grab your flannel and get to Dubuque this fall. Don't miss the Fenelon Place Elevator, Czipar’s Apple Orchard, or Dubuque Farmers’ Market in the fall.

7: WINTER IS A TIME TO CHILL

FOR MORE THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT DUBUQUE, VISIT THE WELCOME CENTER. Fresh made (and free) popcorn, smiling faces, your next Dubuque shirt, and a whole lot of information await you at the Welcome Center!

As the temperature drops, Dubuque’s rolling hills will soon become blanketed in snow. That's when you can find us hitting the slopes at Sundown Mountain. Whether you are a novice or an expert, Sundown offers hills suitable for all levels. For activities with less velocity, consider snowshoeing at Swiss Valley Nature Preserve or cross-country skiing at Mines of Spain Recreation Area.

YEAR ROUND

Don't miss the Brewfest on Ice, Sundown Mountain, or Reflections in the Park in the winter.

Saturday: 10 AM – 4 PM Sunday: Closed

8: INSPIRATION IS EVERYWHERE George R.R. Martin, famous for authoring the books in which HBO’s hit series 'Game of Thrones' is based on, was a professor at Clarke University in Dubuque from 1976 to 1979. The Fenelon Place Elevator served as inspiration for some of the author’s writings.

9: WE'VE BEEN ON THE BIG SCREEN Dubuque has been featured in films like F.I.S.T., Take This Job and Shove It, and Oscar nominated Field of Dreams. You can still experience the magic of the field today.

Iconic Landmarks

OF DUBUQUE Discover the rich history of Dubuque through its breathtaking architectural landmarks. Explore our unique past full of Instagram-worthy moments on your journey to where Iowa started.

SHOT TOWER Established in 1856

Stand tall next to Dubuque’s Shot Tower. Built in1856 for the production of military ammunition, it stands as one of only three towers left in the entire United States. This 120 foot tall iconic structure produced lead shot from 1856-1858 and briefly during the Civil War. The Shot Tower was later used as a fire watchtower for the Standard Lumber Company until the interior of the tower was destroyed by a fire in 1911. Take a stroll down the Mississippi Riverwalk for a photoopt stop at this must see Dubuque landmark.

TOWN CLOCK Established in 1873

Don’t let your time in Dubuque slip away. The Town Clock was originally erected atop a downtown Main Street building in 1873 then moved to the Plaza in 1971. The clock, which maintains an accurate time within half a second, weighs 13 tons and stands an impressive 110 feet tall. Take in a summer concert at this memorable gathering spot in Downtown Dubuque.

FENELON PLACE ELEVATOR

JULIEN DUBUQUE MONUMENT

Established in 1882

Established in 1897

Take a ride up the Fenelon Place Elevator for the widest view of the city. Originally built for private use, the elevator’s primary function was to transport citizens up the bluff for their lunch hour. This funicular wins the world record for shortest and steepest railway with a length of 296 feet and climbing an elevation of 189 feet at a 41 degree angle. See the sweeping landscapes of the Tri-State region all while riding up the beautiful bluffs of the Mississippi River valley.

Look out over the mighty Mississippi River at the Julien Dubuque Monument in the Mines of Spain. There lies the French-Canadian fur trader who was the first permanent settler in the Dubuque area, leading to the founding of Iowa’s oldest city in 1833. The Mesquakie Indians buried Julien Dubuque with tribal honors above the banks of Catfish Creek in the now Mines of Spain Recreation Area.

OPEN FOR SETTLEMENT

HISTORIC SHOT TOWER

The first permanent settler to Dubuque was a FrenchCanadian fur trader, Julien Dubuque. He befriended the Mesquakie Indians who occupied the region at the time. After developing close relationships with the Mesquakie, Julien was shown and permitted to mine the many lead deposits of the area. He named the area Mines of Spain, and successfully operated it until his death in 1810.

Under the Black Hawk Purchase Treaty in 1833, the United States Government opened the area up for settlement. It came to be known as Dubuque when it was chartered in 1837. Iowa later became a state in 1846, 13 years after the treaty. Dubuque truly is #WhereIowaStarted!

Dubuque’s Shot Tower was built in 1856 to efficiently produce lead shots for the military. Molten lead was poured through a grate at the top of the tower. Then, the relatively uniform drops that fell from the grate would land in the water below which cooled the lead into its solid state. The tower has been burned (interior only), hit by a train, repaired and renovated to its current state.

7 WAYS TO EXPLORE DUBUQUE HISTORY:

1. SEE THREE STATES BY RIDING UP THE WORLD'S SHORTEST, STEEPEST, RAILWAY, FENELON PLACE ELEVATOR.

2. SPEND THE DAY SHOPPING, TASTING BREWS, AND DINING IN THE HISTORIC MILLWORK DISTRICT.

1882: FENELON PLACE ELEVATOR Back in 1882, everything closed for an hour and a half over the lunch hour. Unfortunately for Mr. J. K. Graves, the route to his house required a half hour buggy ride around the bluff. He decided to build a cable car to cut down on his commute. The original cable car was hauled up and down on two rails by a hemp rope. After the cable car burned down twice, ten neighbors founded the Fenelon Place Elevator Company.

3. HIKE ALONG THE EXPANSIVE VISTAS AT THE MINES OF SPAIN, ENDING WITH A STOP AT THE JULIEN DUBUQUE MONUMENT.

STARTED. 1897: JULIEN DUBUQUE MONUMENT 87 years after Dubuque’s death in 1810, the Julien Dubuque Monument was erected. Constructed of Galena limestone mined from a nearby quarry, this structure resembles a medieval form with features common to the late Gothic Revival used between 1860 to 1890. Today, this 29 foot high, 12 foot in diameter monument is still visible to the public at the Mines of Spain.

4. IMMERSE YOURSELF IN THE MAKERS SPACE, COMPLETE WITH 3D PRINTING AND MORE AT THE HISTORIC CARNEGIE STOUT PUBLIC LIBRARY. @KASSIDY_HARDGROVE, @KFLINT

1898: HISTORIC STAR BREWERY COMPLEX Iowa’s oldest brewery was founded by the Rhomberg family in 1898. The five-story brick brew house was forced to close with the beginning of Prohibition & reopened in 1933 with its repeal. The brewery changed hands several more times before being acquired by the City of Dubuque and renovated in the early 2000s. Today, the Star Brewery Complex features a historical display on its ground floor.

5. DISCOVER THE MIGHTY MISSISSIPPI AT THE NATIONAL MISSISSIPPI RIVER MUSEUM & AQUARIUM.

1920S: AL CAPONE IN DUBUQUE Hotel Julien Dubuque has hosted many famous guests, but none as notorious as Chicago gangster, Al Capone. When things were 'too hot to handle' in Chicago, it is legend that Al Capone would hide out at this historic hotel. He reportedly made use of a nearby underground garage to hide his cars and further conceal his presence in Dubuque. Today, you can live like this prohibition-era gangster by staying in the Capone Suite at Hotel Julien Dubuque.

6. VISIT THE FIRST CHURCH IN IOWA WITH THE 5TH LARGEST COLLECTION OF TIFFANY WINDOWS.

1989: FIELD OF DREAMS MOVIE SITE Is this heaven? No, it’s Iowa. This catch phrase got it’s fame from the Academy Award nominated film, Field of Dreams, primarily shot in Dyersville, Iowa. This iconic movie featured Kevin Costner, Amy Madigan, and James Earl Jones. Inspired by the magic of the 'ghosts,' a group of players can still be spotted emerging from the corn from time to time to greet the thousands who make the pilgrimage to see the site each year.

Where Iowa Started

y t h g i M

S S I S S MI The name Mississippi comes from the Anishinaabe people who called the river ‘Misi-ziibi’ which means ‘great river’.

Thanks to its location along the Mississippi, Dubuque's economy has been heavily influenced by the waterway. Founder Julien Dubuque quickly established relationships with the Mesquakie Indian Tribe which led to a growing trade market. While initially known for its fur trading and lead mining, settlers brought new business, such as button making, boat construction and millworking. At the turn of the century, Dubuque's Millwork District was booming.

DIANA CONTRERAS AT 395 MAIN STREET:

Blanketing the side of 233 Main Street is the vibrant floral work of Baltimore, MD artist Gaia. This flower filled mural seeks to celebrate the preservation accomplishments of Iowan botanist Ada Hayden. Reflecting this mural, the Fulbright recipient and Forbes 30 Under 30 artist Gaia, created a contrasting work at 197 Main Street featuring a photo replica of Dubuque Malting Company workers, opening the discussion of labor in the United States.

Capri College, 395 Main Street, has become a hub of new murals in Dubuque, the most prominent being “Wild Rose,” a work by influential Miami artist Diana Contreras. From street art scenes to gallery settings, Contreras’ work centers around the emotion and intuitive nature of women. “Wild Rose,” inspired by the state flower of Iowa, seeks to complement the cityscape in hue and reflect the same beauty Contreras experienced from the people of Dubuque.

MYSTERY DINNER THEATER: HO, HO HOMICIDE Stone Cliff Winery Event Room stonecliffwinery.com | 563.583.6100 Everyone at the North Pole is working extra hard this year to make this a holiday to remember, but something's amiss on Poinsettia Parkway. The newest, coolest, and most revered kids' bike on the market 'Zuzu's Pedals' has some production issues. On top of that, Mrs. Claus is worried about Santa's diet but mostly his sugary-sweet secretary Candy Cane. Add in some elves, an environmentalist who's checking everything twice, and a perky Customer Service Rep who covers Santa's Ho, Ho Hotline, and you've got a Ho, Ho, Hilarious Homicide.

HEAR FROM A DUBUQUER:

Indigo Channing Q: IF YOU WERE TRYING TO CONVINCE SOMEONE TO VISIT DUBUQUE - WHAT WOULD YOU TELL THEM? A: We're a city which is SUPER into

preserving history, and you can check out different architecture with walking, horse, or trolley tours. St. Luke's lets people check out their Tiffany Glass windows, and the Dubuque Museum of Art has cool exhibits. Everything is relatively inexpensive here, and we have some beautiful views of the Tri-State area from places such as Eagle Point Park, Cleveland Park (which is highly underrated), and the Fourth Street Elevator.

Q: WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING TO DO IN NATURE IN DUBUQUE? A: Most of my interaction with nature

is at the riverwalk, but I love going to Mines of Spain and Swiss Valley, both. Swiss Valley has some good trout fishing spots. They both have phenomenal interpretive centers and great trails to go hiking on. The historical info at the Mines of Spain are awesome to check out while exploring the trails.

HEAR FROM A DUBUQUER:

Nona Jones

I HAD HEARD ABOUT DUBUQUE FROM SOME RELATIVES THAT THIS WAS A NICE AND QUIET PLACE. I had decided to move in 2016 because I needed

something new and something different. What keeps me here is my church. It keeps me on my toes, together, and working on myself. What I appreciate about Dubuque is that everybody is really friendly here, they stop and say hello.

LOCALLY CRAFTED BREWS IN AND AROUND DUBUQUE

Our brewery scene has been booming. With unique locations and stellar folks behind the brews, our craft beer landscape is one that can't be missed.

THE ONE THAT WAS LOCALLY FUNDED:

JUBECK NEW WORLD BREWING Jubeck New World Brewing is a small microbrewery located in downtown Dubuque, Iowa. Their mission is to create interesting and delicious craft beer while providing a social space that cultivates conversation and comrardery. Community is important to them - it literally funded their startup and continues to shape their business.

THE PEOPLE: Jay Jubeck and Dan Caraway are the owners, but they've got an amazing crew making it happen, probably too many names to mention.

THE BEER: Apricot (IPA): American IPA brewed with Apricots - moderate hop bitterness with notes of citrus and pine. (Pictured)

THE ONE THAT SITS ALONG THE RIVER:

RIVER RIDGE BREWERY River Ridge Brewery is a family owned and operated, community driven nano-brewery. It was started by 4 passionate craft beer lovers. Some of them have a background in the craft beer business, some in brewing, some in money, and some just love beer.

THE PEOPLE: All 4 owners were born and raised in Bellevue and wanted to do their part to give back to the town that gave them awesome sayings like yous guys, you behavin or what. That is why in 2016 they opened up a one barrel nano-brewery right in good’ol Bellevue.

THE BEER: Rural Route Stout (Oatmeal Stout): Dark, roasty, full body beer with hints of chocolate and coffee. Touch of sweetness is added to make this the perfect stout. (Pictured)

THE ONE WITH DELICIOUS FOOD:

7 HILLS BREWING COMPANY

With the mission to produce world class craft beer paired alongside unique cuisine within a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere, the folks at 7 Hills pride themselves on their ability to renovate and restore their space and the brewing traditions that once permeated Dubuque’s landscape.

THE PEOPLE: Keith Gutierrez is the not status quo CEO, Tim Conklin is the Chef extraordinaire, Megan Carter is the GM, and her husband Sean Carter is the Brew Dude.

THE ONE WITH THE RETRO ARCADE:

BACKPOCKET BREWERY This is the third expansion location for Backpocket and the first dedicated taproom. Their goal is to spread their beer to all areas of Iowa so whether you live in a small town or a big city, Backpocket will be within a reasonable reach.

THE PEOPLE: The folks at Backpocket really felt like you could tell a lot about a man by what he keeps in his back pocket - a useful pocketknife, a lucky coin, a worn out photo. Whatever it is, there's a story behind it. From that idea came the unconventional stories (and names) of their beer.

THE BEER: Gold Coin (Helles): Easy-drinking light lager that is frequently ordered by craft beer rookies and pros alike. (Pictured)

MORE BEER TO TRY Slingshot (Dunkel) Raygun (IPA)

THE ONE WITH A MUSEUM OF HISTORY:

POTOSI BREWING COMPANY

Founded in 1852, the Potosi Brewing Company became the fifth largest brewery in Wisconsin and distributed coast to coast. The brewery survived prohibition but closed in 1972. Following a $7.5 million restoration, the Potosi Brewery Foundation reopened the brewery in 2008.

THE PEOPLE: The Potosi Brewing Company has brought craft brewing back to Main Street Potosi, Wisconsin. Today they lovingly craft only the highest quality beer, in small batches and without compromise, forging a renewed tradition of excellence that’s all their own.

THE BEER: Good Old Potosi (Golden Ale): Moderate sweet malty aroma with a slight ester character from the ale yeast. (Pictured)

THE ONE THAT YOU CAN FIND ALL OVER:

DUBUQUE BIER Over a good bomb fire in the back yard, it was decided that Dubuque needed a good brew that echoes the history of Dubuque. Taking their name from the historic brewery that was once one of the largest in the country. After researching old recipes and tweaking one to today's standards, Düber Bier was born.

THE PEOPLE: Family owned by Terry, Angela and Gabriel Mozena

THE BEER: Dubuque Bier (German Pilsner): Nice malt aroma accompanied by German noble Haullertau hop aroma best described as floral, mildly spicy, with a hint of lemon and citrus. (Pictured)

Q: WHERE IS YOUR FAVORITE PLACE TO EAT IN DUBUQUE? A: My favorite place to eat in Dubuque

is Lina's Thai Bistro. I have pretty much tried everything on the menu and you cannot go wrong. Lina and her husband are very kind and love what they do - and it shows! The food is always fresh and delicious.

Q: WHAT IS ONE OF YOUR FAVORITE PLACES TO GRAB A LOCALLY MADE BEER, WINE, OR SPIRITS? A: My favorite place to go grab a

locally made beer, wine, or spirit is Stone Cliff Winery. The building that it is located in is absolutely gorgeous. They have so many fun and unique wines and the staff are very helpful and friendly.

Q: WHERE CAN SOMEONE FIND YOU ON THE WEEKENDS IN DUBUQUE? A: On the weekends I love going to

any of the local breweries - Jubecks, 7 Hills, or Backpocket. I also enjoy going to Smokestack for entertainment, delicious food, and amazing drinks. As a family activity you can find me at any of the local bowling alleys - I love them all for their own unique reasons, but Cherry Lanes is probably my favorite.
