Railroads

Dubuque and Iowa were on the forefront of railroad development in the United States in the middle part of the Nineteenth Century.  John Plumbe Jr. was the first person to propose a Transcontinental Railroad.  Delegate to the U.S. Congress George Wallace Jones proposed the idea to the U.S. House of Representatives, upon hearing of the proposal one U.S. Congressman suggested we might just as well build a railroad to the moon.
