Highway 34 Emerson Sign

Crossroads of Highways 59 and 34
Nestled in the Southwest corner of Iowa between the east and west branches of the Nishnabotna River. Emerson typifies the small town atmosphere and work ethics of the Midwest. With a population of 438, we strongly support the local school along with neighboring communities of Henderson, Hastings, and Imogene.
