1829 · Missouri State Library

Age 4

The first Missouri State Library was established by law on January 22, 1829. This law was created due to the large amount of public documents which had been collected in the office of Missouri's secretary of state. The library included documentation of the actions of the Missouri senate and house. The documents were cataloged and made available to the public. The public had access to any of the books in the library from sunup to sundown on any day except Sunday.

Age 21

Iowa is the 29th state.
1857 · The State Capital moves to Des Moines

Age 32

The Capitol was located in Iowa City until the 1st General Assembly of Iowa recognized that the Capitol should be moved farther west than Iowa City. Land was found two miles from the Des Moines River to start construction of the new building. Today the Capitol building still stands on its original plot.

Name Meaning

English: patronymic from the personal name Robert . This surname is very frequent in Wales and west central England. It is also occasionally borne by Jews, presumably as an Americanized form of a like-sounding Jewish surname.
