Nestled in the Southwest corner of Iowa between the east and west branches of the Nishnabotna River. Emerson typifies the small town atmosphere and work ethics of the Midwest. With a population of 438, we strongly support the local school along with neighboring communities of Henderson, Hastings, Imogene and Malvern.

The Council has again decided to UNLOCK the site, PLEASE ensure you only leave appropriate items!! If you notice someone violating this use, please inform City Hall.
