Des Moines is the capital and the most populated city in Iowa. Named after the Des Moines River, Des Moines was adapted from the French phrase “Rivière des Moines” meaning “River of the Monks”. The city traces its origins to 1843, when Captain James Allen supervised construction of a fort where the Des Moines and Raccoon Rivers merge, which is a site that has drawn human activity for thousands of years.
Most of Fort Des Moines was destroyed by the Flood of 1851, when the Des Moines and Raccoon rivers both rose to unprecedented heights. Fort Des Moines was incorporated as a city later that year, and in 1857, the name shortened to Des Moines as it became the new state capital, which was previously Iowa City.
Today, Des Moines is a major center for the insurance industry and for presidential politics.
