Discovering Historic Iowa. American Revolution Bicentennial Edition.
Pratt, LeRoy G.
Prepared in recognition of the Bicentennial, this historic guide of Iowa is intended to supplement materials prepared by the Iowa Curriculum Division. It provides, in one convenient reference, information for use by teachers, students, tourists, and others interested in Iowa's history. Up-to-date information is given on historical societies, museums, archaeological sites, geological areas, botanical preserves, wildlife exhibits, outdoor classrooms, zoos, art centers, scientific facilities, and places of historical or cultural interest. The resource unit is arranged in alphabetical and numerical order by name and number of county. Names of all known societies, museums, landmarks, sites, natural areas, and facilities used for educational purposes are listed alphabetically under each county. Also included are a location map; an index; a calendar of celebrations, festivals, and historical events; an Iowa map; and an alphabetical index. This resource may be of interest as a model to other states that wish to develop a guide for the Bicentennial. (Author/JR)
