About Des Moines

Des Moines i/dɨˈmɔɪn/ is the capital and the most populous city in the U.S. state of Iowa. It is also the county seat of Polk County. A small portion of the city extends into Warren County.[5] It was incorporated on September 22, 1851, as Fort Des Moines which was shortened to "Des Moines" in 1857.[6] It is named after the Des Moines River, which may have been adapted from the French Rivière des Moines, literally meaning "River of the Monks." The five-county metropolitan area is ranked 88th in terms of population in the United States with 580,255 residents according to the 2011 estimate by the United States Census Bureau.[7] The city proper population was 203,433 at the 2010 census.[8]
