The city of New Albin is located in the northeast corner of Iowa on the Minnesota line in the Mississippi River Valley.  New Albin is only 27 miles from La Crosse, Wisconsin.

You will find the backwaters of the Mississippi River east of town.  You can access these backwaters by Army Road, which was built in 1962 by the Corp of Engineers.  As you travel to the north edge of town you will find the famous iron post, which is registered with the National Historical Society.  This iron post marks the boundary line between Minnesota and Iowa.  As you head east and cross the railroad tracks you will see the Winnebago Valley and surrounding bluffs.  And finally, as you complete the circle going south you’ll see the Upper Iowa River Valley.
