The Elkader Community
Elkader is an active town of about 1250 people, located in a beautiful valley along the Turkey River, in what is known as the “driftless area” of Clayton County. The region was not scoured by glaciers during the last ice age and remained rugged while the surrounding area was scraped level. Elkader is the hub of a large trade area which includes one of the most prosperous and diversified farming sectors in the Midwest. It is near the center of 470,000 Clayton County farm acres.
Elkader is the County Seat, has excellent educational and recreational facilities, a highly regarded hospital, and is home to the main office of the Keystone Area Education Agency. Three state highways, Iowa 13, 56, and 128 enter the city from the north, east, south, and west. Two county paved highways connect Elkader with surrounding county communities. Elkader was awarded The Great American National Main Street Award in 2001 and the Spirit of Main Street Award in 2004.
The city is named after Algerian leader Abd al-Qadir al-Jaza'iri. When the community was platted in 1846, the founders, Timothy Davis, John Thompson, and Chester Sage decided to name it for the young Algerian who was leading his people in resisting the French, fighting for the freedom of his people.
