Iowa's Most Viewed Oddity
I Lived In Cedar Rapids so for a second I thought it was the Statue of Liberty in our city by the river... it is not. The Statue of Liberty getting all the clout in Iowa is actually in Des Moines..
It turns out that the mini Statue Of Liberty is the 10th most popular national oddity in the country. You can find it on the east side of the Iowa State Capitol. In total, it has accumulated a cool 4.7 million views on TikTok
Wanderu went on to say,
Now, let’s say you really want to visit the Statue of Liberty, but taking a trip to Ellis Island isn’t in the budget this year. Or maybe you’d like to visit a lesser-known version of the symbol of all of America’s collective hopes and dreams.
Thanks to a little lady in Des Moines, Iowa, that dream is now a possibility.
