Welcome From the Board of Supervisors

As Chair of the Lee County Board of Supervisors, I am very proud to represent all the citizens of our county and welcome you to the Lee County Website.

Lee County has a strong industrial base. Business and Industry thrive because of our transportation infrastructure with the Avenue of the Saints and US Highway #61.  We are also known for our high quality workforce.  Plus, we have a unique access to the mighty Mississippi River gracing our eastern border making barge transportation a very feasible and cost-effective method of moving materials to and from our county.  We have a network of rail, air and pipelines enabling Lee County and surrounding areas to offer unique opportunities for economic development.

Lee County has a strong commitment to education. We have three public school systems: Central Lee, Keokuk and Fort Madison Community School Districts. We have one parochial school system and a high quality Southeastern Community College with a campus in Keokuk and a class center in Fort Madison.

Throughout the year, Lee County hosts many special events and festivals. Some of these include the Battle of Pea Ridge Civil War Reenactment and Eagle Days in Keokuk;  The Tri-State Rodeo and the Mexican Fiesta are held each year in Fort Madison; The Sweet Corn Festival is held in West Point the second weekend in August; Montrose hosts the Watermelon Festival the last weekend in August and the Lee County Fair and Apple Days are held annually in Donnellson.

I encourage everyone to enjoy all that Lee County has to offer. While here, please drive the relaxing and scenic view of the River Road that stretches along the banks of the mighty Mississippi River and experience the warm hospitality and friendliness of our citizens. Visit us - you won’t be disappointed.

Welcome to Lee County and hopefully you will agree with us - we have a uniquely beautiful county encompassed by rivers: the great Mississippi to the East, the Des Moines River to the South, and the Skunk River to the North.
