Welcome to Iowa's Louis Arriandeaux Log House
Originally built back in 1827, the Louis Arriandeaux Log house is found in Dubuque County, Iowa, near the Mississippi River. This was back in the days of America's sixth president of the United States, John Quincy Adams.
The home was initially occupied by French Fur Trader, Louis Arriandeaux and later by American Pioneer, William Newman.
The cabin has seen its share of history in its almost 200-year existence. Including Iowa statehood, the U.S. Civil War, and the turn of the twentieth century.
