A Bit of Iowa Church History

I had read of a rock in Dubuque that recognized the first meeting of the church of Christ in Iowa. On October 14 of this year (2003) we went to Dubuque to try to locate this rock. We found it in a park not far from the Julian Dubuque Memorial. It states the organizational meeting was held October 1, 1835. Some dates that will help bring this date into prospective are:

We were excited to find the rock. We spent the following day enjoying God's creation as we drove along the Mississippi River and enjoyed the beauty of the leaves.
