Historic Map - McGregor, IA - 1869
View of McGregor, Clayton County, I.A., 1869 / drawn & published by A. Ruger.
This bird’s-eye view print of McGregor, Iowa was drawn by Albert Ruger and published by Chicago Lithographing Co. in 1869. McGregor began as an important ferry landing for crossings of the Mississippi River leading to Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin. The grain produced in the region was extensively shipped from this point during the era.
When the Milwaukee & Mississippi Railroad planned to bring their line north of town, North McGregor was established. Both McGregor and North McGregor prospered with shipping and the railroad industry. The railway terminus town of North McGregor is now called Marquette.
The map from 1869 includes labeled streets, buildings and railroad route. Riverboat and barge activity is displayed along the Mississippi.
