There’s some discrepancy around how Muscatine, which means fiery nation, earned its current moniker. Some believe it was taken from the Mascoutin Indians that lived in this area during the 18th century. Others claim that the name came from what the Indians named Muscatine Island. Regardless of how it came to be Muscatine, the area has plenty of attractions to entice visitors from near and far.
