Founded in 1851, West Branch is considered to be one of the more historic towns in the State of Iowa. On April 13, 1987, the United States Department of the Interior added fourteen commercial buildings in West Branch to the National Register of Historic Places under the designation West Branch Commercial District.  

Herbert Clark Hoover, the 31st President of the United States of America (March 4, 1929 – March 4, 1933), was born here on August 10, 1874 to Quaker blacksmith Jesse Clark Hoover and his wife, Hulde Minthorn Hoover. Hoover’s birthplace cottage, burial plot, and Presidential Library-Museum, attract tens of thousands of visitors to West Branch annually.


The Hoover Presidential Library-Museum is one of thirteen Presidential Libraries-Museums in the United States of America, and it’s located within one of the two National Parks in the State of Iowa.


In 2006 West Branch received its designation as A Main Street Iowa community.


The community of West Branch invites and welcomes you to come Eat, Shop, and Explore Historic West Branch, Iowa.
