Pliny and Adelia Fay House

Muscatine [†], seat of Muscatine County, first came into existence in the summer of 1833 when Colonel George Davenport of Rock Island, Illinois, sent three representatives into the territory to set up a trading post. That same year, James W. Casey and John Vanatta stopped at the outpost. Here Casey's "woodpile" stocked the steamboats providing access to the frontier, opened June 1, 1833, by the Blackhawk Purchase, and gave the settlement its first name of "Casey's Woodpile."
