During the 1996 celebration of Iowa's Sesquicentennial, each county was asked to develop a legacy project to enhance the historic and educational aspects of Iowa's first 150 years. The Scott County Sesquicentennial Committee selected a Trails & Markers Project to leave a permanent record of the county's role in the state's growth.
