Notes
Survey number HABS IA-63
Significance: After the University of Iowa, the Iowa institution for the Education of the Blind is the oldest state educational institution in Iowa. Its main building is the oldest of those of any state "charitable institution" and, next to Old Capitol in Iowa City, it may be the oldest surviving state institutional building in Iowa. Its designers were builder-architects of practical rather than professional training, and were reputable men.
