Iowa county was established in 1843, and named for the Iowa River, which flows through the county. Iowa County is home to the Amana Colonies, a group of settlements of German Pietists, comprising seven villages. Calling themselves the Ebenezer Society or the Community of True Inspiration they first settled in New York state near Buffalo in what is now West Seneca. However, to live out their beliefs in more isolated surroundings they relocated to Iowa County in 1855, living a communal life until the mid-1930s. Today, Amana is a major tourist attraction known mainly for its restaurants and craft shops, and the colonies have been listed as a National Historic Landmark since 1965.
