Top 3 Reasons to Live in Ottumwa, IA

  • Ottumwa is a city that grew to its current size almost solely due to the coal mining industry, but its history consists of much more than compressed and fossilized dead plants. From the huge Flood of 1851 to visits from five different presidents along the campaign trail, Ottumwa is a rarely heard of city that manages to stay relevant. After all, if Teddy Roosevelt, Harry Truman and Barack Obama all think the city is worth the visit, it really must be.
