On the Des Moines River, on our way home

Bentonsport bridge, built in 1882

Bentonsport was once a bustling steamboat town and grew fast because of it's strategic location on the river. It was platted in 1839, before Iowa was even a state.
But things change and now it resembles a ghost town.  A very pretty one though.
I love this town and the tiger fudge is scrumptious.
