Introduction As you drive into town, your eyes will almost certainly be drawn to the majestic building in downtown Dubuque. That’s the county courthouse. You’ll learn about that later. Dubuque has a nice collection of historic architecture, including some truly amazing churches, and a once moribund downtown that is now alive late into the night. […]
Dubuque’s capitalists struck it rich and poured money into extravagant buildings to prove their worth. Fortunately for us, many of those buildings are still around, including four churches that would be treasures in a city much larger than modest Dubuque.

“If you are planning to take the Great River Road along the Mississippi River…be sure to take along these new travel guides by Dean Klinkenberg… Actually, the books are entertaining to read without leaving your chair.”

“Hey, Just found, read and finished your Lansing to Le Claire. Being a 78 year old that has followed the Mississippi, up and down, all my life, I thought I had little more to learn about the cities, villages and crossroads along the river. Not So! Absolutley loved your book. Great history, great descriptions, great humor. Just top notch!
Thanks for the great writing.
