Henry County, Iowa is located in the beautiful Southern Drift Plain of southeast Iowa. The skunk river traverses Henry County creating two very distinct topographies.

Rich agricultural land is found in the northern region of the county, while rolling timbered hills dominate the southern region. 


Henry County is nationally renowned for it's white-tailed deer and wild turkey populations, not to mention it's diverse prairies and wildflowers.
