“If in all the broad domain of the United States there is any region pre-eminent for its combined advantages of admirable territorial position, salubrious climate, the number and size of its water-courses, fertility of soil, and sunny beauty of undulating scenery, surely it must be the noble State of Iowa.”

—Frederick B. Goddard, Where to Emigrate and Why (1869)
