Arcadia, Iowa: Missouri-Mississippi Divide

Big sign and accompanying rock mark the point where water flows either east to the Mississippi River or west to the Missouri River. Splashing water on the rock won't prove anything, but might be fun.

1341-1319 Lincoln Hwy, Arcadia, IA
On the north side of US-30/Lincoln Hwy, one mile east of the turnoff for Arcadia. Set back a little from the road, but it has its own little turn-out and gravel parking area.

Missouri-Mississippi Divide

Sign and rock, just east of Arcadia on Highway 30.

[Kevin, 08/28/2020]

Marks the dividing line between the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers, not the states, which would make no sense in Iowa.
