About Burlington

and the Tri-State Area

Picture of the Mississippi River from Mosquito ParkLocated on scenic bluffs overlooking the mighty Mississippi River, Burlington is a city rich in history, with roots dating back to 1805. Part of the Louisianna Purchase (some Poindexter's descend from the Lewis family) and the site of Iowa's first territorial capital, Burlington has numerous exciting attractions including Snake Alley, "the crookedest street in the world.

 

Picture of Snake AlleyLt. Zebulon Pike stopped here on the shore of the Mississippi river and unfurled the United States flag in 1805 while he was searching for defensible positions for forts in the new Louisiana Purchase.

Today, Burlington is home to 27,500 individuals who learn, work, and play in this city of many hills. Originally dubbed "Catfish Bend," the city has been a hub of commerce for the surrounding area because of its varied transportation links to highways, rivers, railroads, and air.
