Iowa (pronounced eye'-oh-way) is located on I-10 between the cities of Lake Charles and Lafayette.


Settlers from Kansas, Illinois and Iowa were lured to the area in the mid 1800s to farm and raise cattle. Iowa experienced a growth boom when oil was struck in 1930 and oil companies came to try their luck in the Iowa oil and gas fields.
