Coggon, Iowa, is a small town with a population of under 1,000 in Linn County and has existed since the early 1800s. It was initially named “Cog” after the family of settlers who founded it, but it was later changed to “Coggon.” The town’s slogan is “The One and Only” because there is no other city, town, or county named Coggon. The historic hamlet boasts a rich history, including being home to various industries over the years. In recent years, Coggon has become known as a relatively large agricultural hub surrounded by stunningly beautiful countryside.
Neighborhood parks feature playgrounds, walking paths, and grills for a cookout. Events occur regularly where locals come together to enjoy chili luncheons, book fairs, craft fairs, and performances at the popular Opera House Annex. The community Little League is well-known, as they have won many titles over the years in Iowa. Buffalo Creek will entertain you throughout the seasons if you love water activities. Some local shops offer unique gifts, including special treats for your furry friends at the Wags and Whiskers Pet Bakery.
Small-town vibes can be felt throughout, but Coggon is close to larger cities if you need to immerse yourself in a more modern environment for a short while. Lush green acreage can be found for reasonable prices so you can build your dream home. Or already-established farmhouses and other styles are available for you to settle right in.
