Keokuk, Iowa

Keokuk is another large town along the Mississippi River, and is a dual county seat of Lee County.

The town grew up with the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy building a mainline through the town, and the Wabash Railroad building a small spur into the town from Illinois.
Today, the CB&Q is now a BNSF Mainline; while the Wabash has become a shortline known as the Keokuk Junction Railway.
