As the original historic cultural walking tour of Dubuque with five All-American city awards and the mighty Mississippi river by its side we will take an in-depth look at the birthplace of Iowa with guided interpretation and images of our historic nineteenth century sites. Starting at the Mississippi’s edge tour highlights will include learning of the river’s importance with the arrival of our city’s founder French-Canadian explorer Julien Dubuque, seeing one of the few remaining civil war era shot towers left in the United States, learn of ships being built for both world wars by the largest inland boat works in the nation and hear about early national industrialists such as A.A. Cooper and his “Old Reliable” wagons. Heading to the historic Hotel Julien Dubuque we’ll hear about an important Abe Lincoln visit and Al Capone’s Dubuque hideaway, see the English inspired St. Raphael’s Cathedral and take a ride up the Fenlon Street Elevator (Railway) for a spectacular view of our river valley. Moving on we’ll learn about the early twentieth century Roshek department store with white gloved doorman, a rooftop tea room and eight floors of merchandise and then onto our two iconic 1850 era theaters where performers from Johann Strauss to Bob Hope have performed and continue on today. Come join us for a leisurely walk though Dubuque’s colorful historical past and its flourishment today.
