Locally-owned businesses keep the block lively morning, day, and night! The block is one of the three important historic districts that make up downtown Council Bluffs.

Passageway Mural: Enjoy

The passageway mural was created by local artist and Council Bluffs native, Tyler Kissel. The mural says “enjoy” and features a beautiful sunset in the letters. This mural brightened up the passageway that many locals and visitors walk through to access the businesses on the 100 Block. This mural was a result of the AARP Iowa Community Grant received by The 712 Initiative, through this they were able to commission Kissel to complete the mural. I can see this becoming one of Council Bluffs' most Instagrammable spots!

Lincoln's Pub Mural 

Located on the West side of Lincoln's Pub you will find a mural for the business that features a quote from President Abraham Lincoln "Whatever you are, be a good one." 

Downtown Living

There are several apartments located on the 100 Block including The Rise on Broadway, The Sawyer Building, and the Hughes Iron Flats.
