Historical Homes in Goosetown, Iowa City
Goosetown is in the north of Iowa City. The name Goosetown goes back a bit to when Bohemian immigrants settled there in the 1850’s and kept geese in their yards. It’s about a mile from downtown Iowa City, making it a very popular choice among students and faculty relocating to Iowa City for the University of Iowa. Goosetown is on the east side of the Iowa River, which is where you will find the older period homes dating back to the 1800’s.
