Explore the Five Smallest Towns in Iowa
The 2020 Census has delivered Iowa's latest population counts, and with those numbers now tallied and released, we find several new little towns qualifying as one of our Ten Tiniest Towns in Iowa.
For the past several years, the smallest town in the state has been the itty bitty burg of LeRoy, IA.
According to IowaHomeTownLocator as of July 1, 2020 LeRoy has a population of just 14. So now LeRoy has officially beaten it's arch rival Beaconsfield, another blip on the map that came in at a 15 count population, in the just-released 2020 US Census.
These top two small towns have had populations flip flops over the years, at some point both have been ranked lowest in a competition that's seems older than dirt.
According to IowaHomeTownLocator, the town of Bartlett has a population of 49. It looks like a cozy place, with comfortable median home values and above-average earners. Bartlett is #5 on our Small Town List.
Jacksonville, IA boasts a small town population just a bit lower than Bolan and Meyer, clocking in at 30 heartbeats in the 2020 Census. That makes it our #3.
Hey, that's big news and gives LeRoy bragging rights...at least for now...
