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.
