"If you're intrested in Iowa History" Top 5 Page for this destination Plum Grove Historic Home - Robert Lucas Tip by jamessurratt

Check out the Robert Lucas Home. I was there back before I landed my first job in Iowa City. The hostess told me, upon learning that I was a local, that she met another couple from Ohio where Robert Lucas had a home prior to coming to Iowa City. It was so close to them that they never got to see it. So they stopped to see this one so they could get an idea of what their "home" looked like! It was interesting to see what frontier life was like.
