Pottawattamie County Genealogical Society Mural

622 South 4th Street
Council Bluffs, IA 51503

This photographic mural covers the side of the Pottawattamie County Genealogical Society building and depicts iconic Council Bluffs people and places throughout time. For this project, residents in the Gibraltar Neighborhood Association and members of the Pottawattamie Genealogical Society submitted their favorite photographs for consideration. These came from personal collections as well as the Council Bluffs Public Library’s Special Collections. Resident artist, and longtime neighborhood advocate, Cory Peters, compiled the collage. If you look closely you can even spot current Mayor and former Gibraltar resident Matt Walsh!

The piece was funded by the Iowa West Foundation and facilitated by The 712 Initiative in a series of neighborhood walkability projects aimed to enhance the experience of being a pedestrian in the city.
