More on Dubuque

Today Dubuque is an increasingly popular tourist destination in Iowa. This is due to its architecture, which has attracted tourists from all over. The city itself is also a manufacturing center with industries centering on tourism, publishing, health care and education.

Dubuque is one of the oldest cities founded by Europeans to the west of the Mississippi. The first Europeans to arrive here were French explorers Jacques Marquette and Louis Jolliet in 1673. The city was named after a Quebecois pioneer, Julien Dubuque, who arrived and settled there in 1785.

Dubuque saw an influx of poor immigrants from Germany and Ireland during the 19th and early 20th centuries. They helped spur the growth of the local manufacturing sector. Dubuque had an automotive company, the Adams-Farwell, which was founded in 1889 but eventually closed down in 1912.
