Mediapolis is a city in Des Moines County, Iowa, United States. Its population was 1,560 at the 2010 census. It is part of the Burlington, IA–IL Micropolitan Statistical Area.
Mediapolis was founded in the year 1869. It was first a train station for the city of Kossuth, Iowa at a point on the Burlington, Cedar Rapids and Minnesota Railway (later part of the Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific) between Burlington, Iowa and Wapello, Iowa. Media, meaning "middle," was appended to polis, meaning "village," as Mediapolis is halfway between Washington and Burlington.
From 1875 to the mid 20th century, Mediapolis was a railroad junction where the Burlington and Northwestern Railway to Washington, Iowa (later a branch of the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy) met the original north-south line.
The Rock Island Railroad ceased operation in 1980, leading to the abandonment of the north-south line through Mediapolis. One heavy industry remains 2 miles southwest of town, the United States Gypsum Sperry mine. This is a shaft mine 620 feet deep, opened in 1961 and employing around 200 people in 2010. Of these, only 25 to 50 actually work in the mine.
