About Us

Offering small-town hospitality and a real sense of community, Keota got its start in 1873 as a stop on the Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Railroad line. With a population of 1,025, Keota is situated on the eastern county line of Keokuk and Washington counties. Surrounded with rich Iowa farm ground, Keota is a great place to unwind and kick up your feet.
The Keota Eagle was established in 1875 by George C. Miller and has been serving the community of Keota, Iowa ever since. The newspaper is a weekly publication printed each Wednesday and is owned by Mid-America Publishing Corporation. Hailey Brown is the current editor, covering community news and events, Keota Community School District news, area sports, as well as county wide news and events. In early 2015, The Keota Eagle was recognized as an Iowa Newspaper Association Award Winning Newspaper for Best Newspaper Website and Best Use of Social Media.
