Jones County, located in the great state of Iowa, has a rich history dating back to its establishment on December 21, 1837. It was named in honor of George Wallace Jones, a prominent U.S. Senator and diplomat who played a critical role in the early development of the state. The county is situated in the eastern part of Iowa and has a total area of 577 square miles. The county seat is Anamosa, which is known for its beautiful historic architecture.

One of the first settlers in the area was John B. Siebenthaler, who claimed land near present-day Monticello in 1836. As more pioneers arrived, various settlements were established, including Edinburgh, Rome, Lexington, and Stone City. By the mid-1800s, the county's population grew steadily as the thriving agricultural economy attracted more settlers.

During the Civil War, Jones County residents played a significant role by enlisting in the Union Army to fight for the abolition of slavery. At the War's end, the county saw continued growth, and the railroads began to expand in the area, leading to further developments in agriculture, manufacturing, and trade.

One fun fact about Jones County is that it is home to the Grant Wood Scenic Byway, a picturesque route that winds through the county's landscape and showcases the inspiration for Grant Wood, the famous American artist who painted "American Gothic." The byway features historic locations, such as the house where Wood created some of his most famous works, and offers visitors a glimpse of the natural beauty that inspired one of America's most iconic artists.
