As odd as it may seem the second oldest, second largest city in the eastern Nebraska-southwestern Iowa, area has been a neglected topic for historians. At a time when almost every town and way station has had its history written Council Bluffs, Iowa, has been overlooked. This study is an attempt to at least partially fill the void. Council Bluffs' history is far too long and complex to relate in one study of this type, but hopefully, it will be considered as a beginning.
