ORIGINAL

CURRENT

Des Moines County was established and originated in 1834. Des Moines County and Dubuque County were the only counties at this time. Together they contained all of present day Iowa in their borders. In 1836 the Wisconsin Legislature split Des Moines County into Lee, Van Buren, Des Moines, Henry, Louisa, Muscatine and Cook counties. The current boundary lines were established in 1839. Des Moines County was entitled to 10 members of the House of Representatives at Belmont, Wisconsin in October 1836. One of the bills passed at this session selected Burlington as the temporary capital of the territory.
