Frank D. Stout: Dubuque to California

The name Stout in Carnegie-Stout Public Library commemorates Frank D. Stout who donated the land for our Library. Encyclopedia Dubuque lists his Romanesque mansion at 1105 Locust Street as another of Stout's legacies.

The people of California are also the beneficiaries of a legacy honoring Frank Stout's memory. The Frank D. Stout Memorial Park consists of 44 acres of giant redwoods located on the Smith River about ten miles north of Crescent City. "The Stout Grove is the most scenic redwood grove in existence," states Park Ranger Pete Peterson.

He has sent us a virtual tour to enjoy.
