The Loras College Historic District has been listed on the National Park Service’s National Register of Historic Places and is located on approximately 60 acres of property northwest of the central business district of Dubuque. It encompasses all of the contiguous portions of the Loras College campus.
“The designation as a National Historic Place is fitting for Iowa’s first college which happens to be located in Iowa’s key city” Loras College President Jim Collins (’84) said. “The College’s national prominence continues to grow. As much as we value such designations, we are especially proud of the alumni outcomes we continue to produce.”
