“Welcome to the City of West Branch!!!”
We welcome the opportunity to share the story and history of our remarkable community.
The City of West Branch is the birth place of one of our most innovative and industrial U.S. Presidents… Herbert Hoover. The City of West Branch is also known as one of Iowa’s smart rural communities, which highlights our community for: Blue Ribbon Schools, First-Rate Health Care, Smart Cutting Edge Government Services, Robust Security and Policing, and Efficient Energy Distribution and Use.
