The Iowa Gallivant Comes to Life! Episode 1 From Haunted Ft. Madison 


Fort Madison, IA: Lee County

Did you click on that video above!?! Thanks to the team at Fourth Wall Productions, Team Goodvin and The Iowa Gallivant are spreading across the web in a new way for us and our loyal readers. And now viewers! Our first episode wrapped up in a familiar town for us and became a Halloween special that is sure to attract travelers to Southeast Iowa.

*Our stay here was complimentary. The opinions expressed on this blog post are of our own.

It was back to Fort Madison and back to the beautiful Kingsley Inn and the great dining experience of the Atlas Steak and Smokehouse. And another round of storytelling at Faeth’s Cigar Shop. We also hit up some new spots such as the The Hill Side Inn and the many buildings of the North Lee County Historical Society. Why? We were in search of haunted Fort Madison and when you watch our first episode, you’ll see that we may have found it.

We were asked by Travis of Fourth Wall Productions to pick a place anywhere in Iowa to film our newest adventure. Anywhere. We knew we had to go back to Fort Madison and show the world just what they had in store. Our earlier trip to Fort Madison had left us wanting to come back and the film crew was behind our decision. So we went off to Fort Madison and had difficulties narrowing all the great stories to just a few minutes. Luckily, that decision was left to the film crew, while we got to enjoy sharing time with our Fort Madison friends.

Over 25,000 views, in less than 24 hours… the world is seeing the great folks of this historic Iowa town. We can’t thank everyone enough for their support for this project, past gallivants, and the many more coming. Where should we go next, Iowa? Wherever it is, we’re having good times when we get there. Stay tuned for episode 2………

Be sure to read about more of our trips to Southeast Iowa and all our adventures on the Iowa Mud Belt.

Thanks for reading! -Team Goodvin
