About Dubuque

Dubuque is a city located in the state of Iowa, along the Mississippi River. It is the oldest city in Iowa and was originally settled by French fur traders in the 17th century. The city was named after Julien Dubuque, a French-Canadian explorer who was granted permission by the Meskwaki tribe to mine lead in the area. The mining industry played a significant role in the early development of Dubuque, and the city became a major center for lead mining in the 19th century.

Freight transportation has been a crucial part of Dubuque's history and economy. The city's location along the Mississippi River made it an important transportation hub for goods and products. In the early days, steamboats were the primary mode of transportation, carrying goods up and down the river. The arrival of the railroad in the mid-19th century further enhanced Dubuque's transportation capabilities, connecting the city to other major markets and facilitating the movement of goods. Today, Dubuque is still a vital transportation hub, with a well-developed infrastructure that includes highways, railroads, and a port along the Mississippi River.
