Iowa’s Constitution Scanned to Share With All


DES MOINES, Iowa — A historic Iowa document is now online for all to see.

A special process was used to carefully create a digital copy of the 1857 Iowa constitution.

Secretary of State Matt Schultz removed it from its display case in his office and took it to the State Library. There a special, very delicate scanner was used to take a picture of each page.

You can view the scans of the constitution at the State Library of Iowa’s website.
