Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, this area of Muscatine is a must to explore. Uniquely local restaurants and specialty shops, historic buildings, Pearl Plaza and the wonderful Mississippi riverfront all make up the big community heart of Muscatine.
The “core” downtown is considered to be the area from the riverfront on the south to Fourth Street on the north. Its eastern boundary is Mulberry Avenue and its western boundary is Pine Street. The general downtown “area” extends the eastern boundary to Mad Creek and the northern boundary on Mulberry Avenue to Sixth Street.
