How did Burlington, Iowa get its name?

A man named John Gray named it after his hometown in Burlington, Vermont for $50. This town [was] originally called Flint Hill- the Indian name was Shoquokon, Flint or Rock Hill. - Mindy P

What is the most beautiful or interesting NATURAL attraction in or near Burlington, Iowa and why?

Starr's Cave Park and Preserve
Starr's Cave Park and Preserve was established in the mid 70's. It is owned by the state and managed by the Des Moines County Conservation. The preserve is a 200 acre area just outside of Burlington, Iowa. Although it is not large in scale there is still an abundance of nature, fossils, caves and more to explore. Flint Creek had carved out from the landscape a beautiful gorge with a small valley. Along part of Flint Creek on display are many flint and limestone bluffs. Caves are also a part of our area's natural landscape. One of the three caves in the preserve, called Star's Cave, has for generations been explored by young and old. It may not be a large cave, but it has enough twists and bends and a large room at the end. The cave continues, but the opening is too small to explore. Still Star's Cave has filled many young minds with awe and mystery. I have a postcard made from an actual photograph dating from about 1910. It shows three men on wooden steps which leads up to the cave posing for their conquest of their expedition. There are trails leading down from the road above that twist and turn and eventually takes you down to the creek. One such trail will take you through the Devilís Kitchen, another small cave which you must pass through. Across Flint Creek from Starrís Cave and the bluffs is a lush meadow where you can find an old stone foundation, perhaps from an early settler. Indians are also part of the areaís history and with the flint in the bluffs I am sure they must have been here more than once. Starrís Care Park and Preserve is filled with natureís beauty and all that is necessary for a personís imagination to soar. - Gregory M.

Where is the best place to eat in Burlington, Iowa and why?

Big Muddy's. Awesome food & scenery that is gorgeous-Mississippi River! It is well worth the 925 mile one way trip each time I come home! - Jane S.
