Dubuque Apartments for Rent
Dubuque was founded by Julien Dubuque in 1788 and is located in the northeast corner of the tri-states of Iowa, Wisconsin, and Illinois, on the Mississippi River. Dubuque was established as the first town in Iowa by hard-working miners and those working on the docks of the river. Since then Dubuque has established itself as one of the most modern cities in the Midwest.
