First inhabitants of Iowa
This area was occupied by four different Indian tribes.
The Ioway tribe, for whom Albert Lea
named our territory, occupied mostly the banks of the
Des Moines River to the south. The
Sioux tribe was located to the north, the Sac and Fox
tribes living in the southern part of our
county. The Sioux were very warlike and constantly fought
with the Sac and Fox. To effect a
peace in the area, the government drew a line that ran
to the north of our counties. It was called
the "Neutral Line." The Sioux were to stay north of the
line, the Sac and Fox to the south.
This line was drawn in 1825. In 1830 two more lines were
drawn, one 20 miles north of the
Neutral line, the other 20 miles south of the line. This
area was called the "Neutral Strip." The
Indians were paid 3 cents per acre for this land.
