Irish Hound Studios, LLC.

Welcome to the Irish Hound Studios web site. The name stems from a life long fascination with the Great Hounds of Ireland. When I started the 1858 project, I needed a limited corporation and the "Irish Hound Studios" seemed like a great name. When I finally get retired (if) I plan to take up photography more seriously and open a small studio. The name is a bit of a double entendre, (without the risqué slant) since the 1858 Project has evolved into The River Park Place. River Park Place will be a small center with several furnished studio apartments available for weekly visits. We plan several larger apartments for longer term rental as well as 3 store front retail units.

The primary goal of this site is to provide information on the 1858 project, and the River Park Place. I will also publish many images taken in the area and information about Guttenberg and the local north east Iowa region. As you will see, this is one of the prettiest places on the Mississippi, indeed, in the US.
