When settlers first built houses and homes in, the riverside property was teeming with oak trees and had wild, open prairie space. Settlers took the beautiful land and converted it largely into farmland for dairy farmers, and the area became famous for its dairy products and creameries. That led to more development, and the town quickly became a popular area for its close location to the river, which was not only beautiful but a major source of transportation.
Today, the city has developed into a primarily residential suburb offering a rich variety of parks and public spaces near the river. With a total of 42 city parks (a comparatively large number for a suburb) and with a huge chunk of the city’s area devoted to the Mississippi National River and Recreation Area, there are almost unlimited recreational outlets for homeowners and residents. Everything from lighted tennis courts and football fields to ice skating rinks and public pools to Frisbee golf courses to archery ranges can be found at one (or multiple) of’s parks. And the abundance of parkland means that a quick picnic or pick-up sports game is usually only a couple blocks from any home you choose to buy.
