History

When planning a funeral, iMortuary can help you find the right funeral providers for whatever you may need. We can help you to locate the Des Moines area cemeteries, funeral homes, and cremation providers or assist you in finding business to send funeral flowers.

Des Moines' origins began with the creation of a fort located at the junction Des Moines River, and Raccoon River. Originally the fort was going to receive the name Fort Raccoon, but the US War Department named it Fort Des Moines. There are a number of theories about the derivation of the name Des Moines. The most popular idea is that it was named after French monks who lived near the river, as Des Moines means "of the monks" in French.
