Montgomery County, Iowa Overview

Montgomery County, established in 1851, is a county located in the southwestern area of the U.S. state of Iowa. As of the 2010 census, the population was 10,740. Its population has declined since a peak in 1900, since urbanization and the decline of family farms. The county seat is Red Oak, and it is also the largest community. The county was founded by European-American migrants from eastern areas in 1851, and it was named in honor of Richard Montgomery, who was an American Revolutionary War general killed in 1775 while trying to capture Quebec City, Canada. The county has been largely rural and devoted to agriculture. It is famous as the location of the unsolved Villisca Axe Murders committed in 1912. Clyde Cessna, the founder of the Cessna Aircraft Company, was born here. The total area of the county in square miles is 425, all of which is land, except for one square mile of water. Neighboring counties are all in Iowa: Pottawattamie to the northwest, Cass to the northeast, Adams to the east, Page to the south, and Mills to the west. Of the eight zip codes on use in the county, 51566 is the largest.
