  1. As of January 1, 2007, the Louisa County Genealogical Society became a committee within the Louisa County Historical Society and no longer maintains separate memberships. We will continue to have informal round table discussions without officers or dues and will continue to maintain the library within the Heritage Center in Wapello, thus the word Society has been replaced by the word Committee. http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~ialcgs/?cj=1&netid=cj&o_xid=0002530104&o_lid=0002530104&o_sch=Affiliate+External The Louisa County Historical Society was organized in 1964. It maintains two museums: The Louisa County Heritage Center, 609 N. James L. Hodges Ave., Wapello, Iowa (319) 527-5247 and the Columbus Community Heritage Museum, 122 Maple St., Columbus Junction, Iowa View full record

Also, several of our local genealogy experts monitor the Louisa County Rootsweb site where you are welcome to post your queries. http://www.louisacountyhistoricalsociety.org/genealogy.htm
  3. Gum Springs was founded by the patriarchal Freedman, West Ford, whose bones rest near George Washington's at Mount Vernon. It was named after a gum tree that once marked the marshy land, highly prized for farming in the past. Quietly nestled across the river on George Washington's side of the Potomac, Gum Springs was a place for blacks to prevail, assimilating runaways and freed slaves who migrated there by way of the nearby port of Alexandria. Many of its for-bearers tended General Washington's estate at Mount Vernon before they were freed at the death of his wife, Martha. Freed slaves found assistance from Quakers in their struggle for economic survival. The skills and trades they learned as estate slaves added to their growth towards independence. Today, Gum Springs has more than 2,500 residents and as many as 500 are descendants of the original families. http://gumspringsmuseum.blogspot.com/

    Welcome to Louisa IA

    We created this page to display county information for each state. Our team is engaged in building out the content to populate this page, sharing genealogy and history information. In the near future, we will be adding our library records which contain Books, Newspapers, Photos, Postcards, and other unique materials. Some of these are being presented to connect descendants with their family heirlooms (postcards, journals, Bibles). These library records will also be useful to those wanting assistance in finding an entry for their ancestors; we will perform "lookups" as time permits. If you have suggestions for content or basic input on the website, send us a message. We would be happy to incorporate your ideas. As we continue to populate this page, it should become more useful in your research so please check back soon!
