303 2nd St NW, Fort Atkinson, IA

Fort Atkinson State Preserve in northeast Iowa’s Winneshiek County contains the structural remains and buildings of a frontier-era U.S. military post. Constructed between 1840 and 1842, and occupied until 1849, the post featured prominently in the removal of the Winnebago (Ho-Chunk) people from their ancestral lands. Today, the site is managed by the Iowa state park system as a historically significant site.
