"Ottumwa, Iowa" Ottumwa by Rich62

Ottumwa Travel Guide: 2 reviews and 12 photos

Location, location....

A "river town," Ottumwa is located on the Des Moines River in southeast Iowa. It is found on highway 34.

The Bridge View Center

This complex is an outstanding example of a community center. It is built with a fine view of at least two bridges, the Church Street Bridge being the closest, and the Wapello Street Bridge just a bit farther away. But it also affords a fine view of the river and the city beyond.

Check my "Things to do" tips below for more photos of the center.
