Muscatine – A City with Two Histories History
Devin Pettit, the residential history buff in Muscatine, illustrated two histories in the riverfront town. Furthermore, he explained that these two histories are correlative to what the city is today.
Muscatine has been through many changes and alterations throughout its history as a city on the river. However, the technological developments that brought industry and business to the town a century ago were been short-lived, but remnants of its heyday are still evidenced in the factory buildings lining the riverfront today. Our group wanted to learn more about this history. We wanted to discover the reason for the remaining remnants of the formerly great button industry.
