< Welcome

Welcome to Mount Pleasant, where tradition meets innovation.

Mount Pleasant is a proud, yet friendly, community in southeast Iowa, a hub of culture and business surrounded by a postcard-worthy countryside. If you are locating in or returning to our area, we invite you to stop by the Mount Pleasant Area Chamber Alliance office in our historic downtown, where you are assured of finding a warm smile and all the information you’ll need to feel right at home. We also encourage you to explore the community online through our website, www.mountpleasantiowa.org.

Is history your passion? Then Mount Pleasant is your place. A steady flow of legendary speakers in the mid-19th century, including Frederick Douglass and Sojourner Truth, helped earn the community the nickname “The Athens of Iowa.” A century and a half later, a visitor to the campus of Iowa Wesleyan College

will stroll past a statue of Arabella Babb Mansfield, the first woman lawyer in the nation admitted to the Bar, and a uniform that once belonged to Dr. Peggy Whitson, the first woman to command the international space station. Both graduated from the college, as did Dr. Thomas Poulter, chief scientist on two of Admiral Richard Byrd’s Antarctic expeditions, and Dr. James Van Allen, principal investigator for the Explorer I and III satellite missions. More recently, Mount Pleasant launched Tom Vilsack, once the city’s mayor, who went on to terms as Governor of Iowa and Secretary of Agriculture under President Barack Obama.

While science, law and governance are admirable pursuits, Mount Pleasant also is justifiably proud of its agricultural heritage. This is most evident over the long Labor Day weekend, when thousands of visitors from across the country and around the globe pour into the Midwest Old Threshers Reunion. From the chug of countless antique tractors to the sight of a coal black steam locomotive pulling passenger cars loaded with laughing children, Old Threshers will warm the hearts of anyone nostalgic for a simpler time. And yet, even with our reverence for the past, Mount Pleasant remains focused on

the future. Several large employers and hundreds of commercial and specialty enterprises keep the community humming with economic activity. Business people especially appreciate Mount Pleasant’s strong, engaged leadership and location at the intersection of two four-lane highways with six metropolitan markets within a day’s drive. An ever-expanding list of amenities that includes an aquatic center, bike and canoe trails, library and civic center, golf course, community theater and multiple sports complexes, ensure there is plenty of fun when the work day is done. At the Mount Pleasant Area Chamber Alliance, a partnership of the Mount Pleasant Area Chamber of Commerce, Mount Pleasant Area Development Commission, Main Street Mount Pleasant and Henry County Tourism, we strive to accelerate economic growth in our community and the surrounding area. We invite you to discover the many reasons why we are so proud of Mount Pleasant. Please use this guide to find the products and services you need while also supporting local businesses. Sincerely, Kiley Miller Executive Vice President Mount Pleasant Area Chamber Alliance

History Without the trailblazing spirit and hard work of early forward-thinking leaders, Mount Pleasant would not be the exceptionally dynamic, thriving community that stands today. The Henry County area opened its doors for settlement on June 1, 1833, with the development of Mount Pleasant following close behind in 1835. The town was the site of the area’s premier hard-surface road. Constructed of wooden planks linking Mount Pleasant to Burlington, the roadway was ultimately replaced by tracks for the Burlington and Missouri River Railroads in 1856. Established educational institutions proved to play a significant role in the history of Mount Pleasant. In fact, the community was at one point dubbed the “Athens of Iowa” due to its strong focus on education. Supplementing the public school system, three four-year colleges were in operation in Henry County – Whittier College in Salem, Iowa Wesleyan University (now Iowa Wesleyan College) and German College in Mount Pleasant. Home-based within Mount Pleasant, Iowa Wesleyan University opened in 1842 and is today hailed as Iowa’s oldest co-educational, degree-granting institution. It was here that seven Iowa Wesleyan co-eds formed a new philanthropic education organization known as the International PEO Sisterhood in 1869. The initial Women’s Rights Convention in Iowa was held in the community in 1870, and in 1943, Iowa Wesleyan College organized the state’s first women’s intercollegiate basketball team.

During the area’s early years, the agricultural industry reigned supreme. While the community retained strong ties to its agricultural roots, past residents understood the importance of expanding the county’s employment base beyond the farm. With the end of World War II, Mount Pleasant began to recruit new industry to the area. The effort attracted several new business ventures, with many of these original companies still calling Mount Pleasant home to this day. These long-time community partners include such nationally known companies as Walmart Distribution, Veyance Technologies, Pioneer Hi-Bred and Hearth & Home Technologies, a division of HON Corporation.


Transportation The slogan of Mount Pleasant radio station KILJ says it best: “Broadcasting from the CROSSROADS OF THE WORLD!” With two new four-lane highways, U.S. Highway 34 and U.S. Highway 218/27, intersecting in Mount Pleasant, the community is less than a day’s drive from the Midwest’s largest markets – Chicago, Saint Louis, Minneapolis/Saint Paul, Indianapolis, Omaha, Kansas City and Des Moines. In fact, the latter highway’s nickname, The Avenue of the Saints, was coined by a Mount Pleasant entrepreneur and community leader who recognized the logistical advantages of a highway linking Saint Louis, MO, to Saint Paul, MN.

AIR ADVANTAGE INC.

Henry County is easily accessed by both passenger and rail freight. An Amtrak train passes through Mount Pleasant’s historic station twice daily on its way between Chicago and San Francisco. Meanwhile, the Burlington Northern Santa Fe and Norfolk Southern railways help local manufacturers keep both inbound and outbound freight costs low. They are assisted in this effort by local shortline operator Burlington Junction Railway, which provides a variety of shipping and transload services. Of course, rail is not the only way to deliver goods. More than 70 local and national motor freight carriers serve Henry County, offering full truck, less-than-truckload (LTL) and small-package shipping.

And if you hear the buzz of an airplane engine, chances are it took off from the 4,001-foot-long, hard-surface runway at Mount Pleasant Municipal Airport. The runway accommodates up to medium-sized aircraft. A grass runway is also available. Aviators can take advantage of year-round access, fuel services, hangar facilities and maintenance services, along with executive charter offerings and professional flight instruction. Larger aircraft are supported at the Burlington Regional/Southeast Iowa Regional Airport. Just 20 miles east of Mount Pleasant, the airport offers commercial airline service through Air Choice One, which provides daily flights to Lambert-St. Louis International Airport and O’Hare International Airport in Chicago.

< Residential

Old and new, traditional and contemporary, ornate and refined. Mount Pleasant’s residential neighborhoods offer the best of both past and present. Restored Victorian-era homes define the Main Street aesthetic, many of them situated on wellmanicured lawns and shaded by towering oaks and maples. A number of these residences are listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and visitors come from across the state and beyond to view, photograph and, on occasion, paint their beauty.

Not everyone wants an old home, though. Mount Pleasant has seen a surge in new construction over the past decade, with upscale subdivisions sprouting on the town’s perimeter. The homes in these subdivisions are spacious and equipped with the latest amenities, including large entertaining and recreation areas, pools and well-appointed kitchens. A few are linked to area parks and the downtown via Mount Pleasant’s new, concrete bike and walking trail.

For renters, choices range from contemporary loft-style apartments within historic downtown buildings to town homes and multi-bedroom houses. Further housing options include starter homes, heartland farmsteads and plenty of seniorfocused facilities offering both independent and assisted living options.

And housing options aren’t limited to Mount Pleasant. Henry County’s smaller communities, Wayland, Winfield, New London, Salem, Olds, Hillsboro and Rome, offer both affordable, attractive homes and the pleasure of living among neighbors you will grown to know and love. And for those who desire a rural acreage, area realtors are ready to make the dream of a home beyond the range of street lights come true.

Across the board, business leaders in this southeast Iowa region say the quality, dedication and excellent work ethic of the city’s workforce is unrivaled. In addition, businesses are drawn to Mount Pleasant’s strategic location at the crossroads of two major expressways and proximity to major metropolitan areas such as Chicago, Saint Louis, Minneapolis, Kansas City, Omaha, Indianapolis and Des Moines. It is well known among local organizations that Mount Pleasant has a long history of providing for and championing its business community. In fact, Mount Pleasant was the first community in Iowa to offer industrial revenue bonds, and today the community works through the Mount Pleasant Area Development Commission (a partner of the Mount Pleasant Area Chamber Alliance) to

facilitate business growth by extending Tax Increment Financing, tax abatement, lowinterest loans and other financial incentives when appropriate. Given its unique mix of assets and breadth of services, it is little wonder that Mount Pleasant is currently marketing its third

Henry County Health Center, a 74-bed facility in Mount Pleasant dedicated to the overall well being of the community and surrounding area, has been recognized frequently at the state and national level for the quality of its care and facilities. Recent accolades include HCHC’s acknowledgement as being one of the top 100 hospitals in the U.S., as well as one of the top 20 rural hospitals with fewer than 250 beds by Modern Healthcare. The hospital also received the “EMT-Paramedic Emergency Medical Service of the Year” award by the National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians (NAEMT), and has been commended multiple times as one of the nation’s “Most Wired Hospitals.” HCHC provides healthcare ranging from cardiopulmonary, rehabilitation and inpatient services to emergency, imaging, laboratory and surgery services. The hospital is staffed by more than 300 knowledgeable healthcare professionals, including a medical staff of more than 25 full-time Henry County-based physicians and physician extenders complemented by over 50 visiting specialists.

County Health Center campus. Pleasant Manor Care Center is a licensed nursing facility that provides immediate care to area seniors, while Arbor Court features multiple facilities that offer four levels of services ranging from independent living to long-term care. Another prominent option for the elderly population in Mount Pleasant is SunnyBrook at Ashford Park.

< Faith

&Values

The cornerstones of faith and values were laid early in Mount Pleasant’s rich history. The Methodist Episcopal Church was the first religious society formed in Mount Pleasant and Henry County. In the latter part of 1835, the Missouri Conference of the M.E. Church sent young Rev. John Ruble “to occupy and cultivate” the new field of Mount Pleasant. He preached his first sermon in the cabin of Presley Saunders, the first home built in Mount Pleasant.

20

From this simple beginning Mount Pleasant is now home to more than 15 houses of worship. Many local faith-based institutions offer holiday services, religious education and community outreach programming to meet the needs of the community. The Henry County Ministerial Association also spearheads a wealth of ecumenical initiatives and programs throughout the Mount Pleasant area.
