Des Moines is the capital and largest city in the state of Iowa with a history as rich as its soil. Des Moines was founded as a military fort in 1843 and has become known as one of the major agricultural centers in the country. Here are a few things that you'll want to see while you're there:

1. Iowa State Capitol Building:
Built in 1886, the Iowa State Capitol Building is known for its grand and beautiful architecture. The capitol building has played a role in both national and state politics as the site of several historical celebrations and protests. Take a 90-minute guided tour and see both chambers of government, the beautiful dome ceiling, and the pieces of Iowa history found throughout the building.

2. Iowa State Fairgrounds:
If you're lucky enough to visit Iowa during the state fair in August, you're in for a treat. The Iowa State Fair is one of the largest in the country and provides entertainment for the whole family. Enjoy concerts, rides, great food, and fun pieces of Iowa culture--including the famous Butter Cow sculpture. If you're not in town for the State Fair, don't worry, there's always something going on at the fairgrounds to add to your fun visit.

3. State Historical Museum:
The official museum of Iowa celebrates various parts of the state's rich history. From Iowa's founding, to its role in the Civil War, and its agricultural evolution, the State Historical Museum showcases some of the most important events in Iowa's history through informative and interactive displays. Its a great place to take the entire family!

4. Iowa Hall of Pride:
The Iowa Hall of Pride is another great way to get acquainted with the rich history of Iowa. Take a walk through the hall to see some of Iowa's most famous leaders, artists, athletes, and more. Learn about some of the most important people in state and national history through a series of interactive and artistic displays.

5. The Wallace Centers of Iowa:
The Wallace Centers of Iowa serve as both a museum and a farm-fresh restaurant. The historical home of two United States Secretaries of Agriculture, the Center remembers the Wallace family and contains various displays depicting their role in American history. Reserve a dinner or a mid-day luncheon and enjoy a wonderful dinner made of farm fresh ingredients.

Stop in and see some of these sites and enjoy the incredible city of Des Moines!

Nearly a decade after playing their last game together Brett Greenwood, Pat Angerer, and Joe Conklin are still teammates in the much more important game of life. There's no doubt Brett benefits from having Joe and Pat by his side, but it's clear to see they need Brett as well. Honored to know these guys and call these guys friends. Brett will never stop battling and proving people wrong. Patrick Aaron Joe Conklin Matt Rokes Brett Greenwood Iowa Football Club Hawkeye Football
