Black Hawk County
13th Street and Waterloo Road
Jackson Taylor established the first school in Black Hawk
County in 1847. Private classes were conducted in a log
cabin that stood near this spot.
Mrs. Taylor had
six pupils in her school, including two daughters of Mr.
and Mrs. John Overman. Mrs. Overman later said that she
walked to this school with her daughters every morning for
fear of Indians. The Winnebago and Pottawatomie tribes were
still active in the Cedar River Valley at that time.
