Ottumwa means place of perseverance and land of rippling waters. Ottumwa embodies the westward expansion of the United States, plentiful game, good fishing, and the river's rippling waters. These qualities enticed Iowa's most famous chiefs, Wapello, Keokuk, and Appanoose, to settle here. Ottumwa is growing and thriving. New businesses continue to open and expand, preserving Ottumwa's place as regional economic center. With very active civic arts groups and the opening of Bridge View Center, Ottumwa's own state of the art Civic Center, we continue to grow as a cultural center.
