The article states that they “considered both the property and violent crime statistics to get some realistic insight into the actual incidences of crime in the towns and cities in Iowa … with this information, you have a confident starting point for finding the ideal municipality for your next home or start-up business.”
Hiawatha, the home of Medal of Honor recipient, Sergeant Salvatore Guinta, has a number of outdoor parks and recreational centers, such as the Cedar Valley Nature Trail, which travels north to Waterloo and south to Ely.
Hiawatha is dedicated to providing a safe and affordable living experience and has placed a lot of attention and care into its town center and public places, “making Hiawatha an enjoyable place to raise a family and do business.”
