Rm 203: Joseph M. Beck

Large corner, riverfront room with a king bed, queen sofa sleeper and 3 windows that over look the Mississippi River. One window is in the bathroom with an unusual placement!  329 square feet

*Joseph M. Beck came to Fort Madison in 1850 and established his law practice here.  He was elected Prosecuting Attorney and Mayer of Fort Madison and later appointed to the Supreme Court of Iowa. He is credited with writing the leading case involving equality in Civil Rights for all residents in the state. This advanced the desegregation of Iowa schools and public locations almost 100 years prior the rest of the nation.​

His home is located 2 blocks away from the hotel at the 630 Avenue E.  This house was built in 1859 with the influences of Gothic Revival, Italiante and Romanesque Revival.  It is currently painted in the same red hue as its original surface!  Look for the picture of his home in this room and on the historic Park-to-Park Residential Historic District self guided tour!
