Iowa County, Iowa, located in the southeastern part of the state, is bounded on the east by Johnson County and on the south by Keokuk and Washington counties, all of which contain Men­nonite settlements. Amish Mennonites settled in adjoining Johnson County in 1846 and by the next decade the settlement had spread westward into Iowa County. The Upper Deer Creek Conservative Mennonite Church, the West Union Men­nonite Church (MC), and the Parnell Mission sponsored by the West Union Church, are located in the southeastern part of the county. Approxi­mately 500 Mennonites lived in the county in the 1950s.
