About the City of Swan, Iowa

In 1845 Marion County, Iowa was organized. Three years later, a new township in the northern part of the county called Swan was organized. By the mid-1880s, Swan had become a bustling city with the arrival of the railroad and continued mining by the Black Swan Coal Mine. Time has brought many changes to the region and today, Swan is a quiet residential community of about 75 residents, all of whom are thankful to call it home.
