Muscatine, Iowa

The city of Muscatine serves as the county seat of Muscatine County, in southeastern Iowa. Muscatine is also the principal city of the Muscatine Micropolitan Statistical Area, which includes all of Muscatine and Louisa counties. Located on a series of bluffs and hills at a major west-south bend in the Mississippi River, Muscatine is home to nearly 23,000 residents. Initially, the city was incorporated as Bloomington in 1839, but the name was changed to its present day name to reduce mail delivery confusion as there were several Bloomington’s in the Midwest. The name, Muscatine, is unique in that it is not used by any other city in the United States.

Muscatine began as a trading post in the early 1800s. By the early 1900s, pearl button manufacturers significantly contributed to Muscatine’s economy. By 1915, Weber & Sons Button Company, Inc. was the world's largest producer of fancy freshwater pearl buttons. From that time forward, Muscatine became known as "The Pearl Button Capital of the World". Weber is still manufacturing today, and celebrated its 100-year anniversary in 2004.
