Warren, Iowa

On July 4, 1838, the U.S. Congress established the Territory of Iowa. President Martin Van Buren appointed Robert Lucas governor of the territory, which at the time had 22 counties and a population of 23,242.


One of the most significant days in Iowa county history was January 15, 1851, on which 49 counties were created.


Counties continued to be created by the state government until 1857, when the last county, Humboldt County, was created.
