What Bert Has To Say About Dubuque Metro Area

Dubuque is an upper Mississippi River town and old industrial center. The city retains a rich historic core with old Victorian brick buildings rising gradually away from the Mississippi waterfront. The town and its buildings have frequently served as a movie set. The waterfront has seen some new investments, including a new aquarium and a convention center.

McDonald, a producer of brass fittings, plumbing and heavy pipe works, also with an Anderson Windows plant and several smaller manufacturing facilities.
