Historical Facts About Urbandale

  • Urbandale was incorporated on April 16, 1917.
  • The city used to have many employees who worked in the local coal mines. The mines were 180 feet to 360 feet deep. Most were closed down in the 1930s, and the last one in operation was the Beck Mine in 1947.
  • Urbandale's early growth revolved around the streetcar system. The line was built to be a railroad line in 1905, but the railroad owners had difficulties with right-of-way acquisition beyond Urbandale. It was converted into a streetcar line that served commuters traveling to work in Des Moines. It also provided residents access to medical services, delivered supplies and offered public transportation before cars were popular.
