Mississippi Cottage Antiques is located in historical Le Claire, Iowa. Le Claire was originally known as the home for several Mississippi river pilots and the birth place of Buffalo Bill Cody. The town received its Charter in 1834.

The shop itself is housed in a 1915 prairie home overlooking the Mississippi river. The house is 99% original with metal ceilings and beveled glass windows. It was built by William Buck of Scott County Iowa.
