Geocache Description:

This cache is placed by Henry County Heritage Trust, a group that has dedicated itself to the preservation of history in Henry County. This is one of the many cache sites they have placed to educate the general public on the little known details of the history surrounding the area.

First Court House

In 1839, just one year after the Territory of Iowa was established, Mount Pleasant built its new courthouse - the first one in the State. The commissioners did not actually occupy the building until their regular meeting on April 6, 1840, but from then on it was in continual use until 1872. A bronze plaque mounted on a native red granite boulder marks the site where the Henry County Courthouse once stood.
