Insight On Business the News Hour

The Interesting Story of James Jordan with author Louise Gately

January 24, 2019

Suddenly we've been telling stories about writers who tell stories. Our third author in less than a week. Meet Louise Gately and her book, "Pursuit of a Dream - James Jordan His Life and His Legacy". Here you'll learn about his successful effort to move the Iowa State Capital from Iowa City to Des Moines. His efforts in the Underground Railroad, slaves from Missouri and his work to develop a railroad hub that served Iowa for decades. Louise spent years researching the story of Mr. Jordan and we think you'll enjoy the result. You can purchase the book through the Historic Valley Junction Office. Here is that link
