Lamson Woods State Preserve

Fairfield, IA 52556

641-472-6159

Lamson Woods is a 43-acre woodland preserve located on the southeast edge of Fairfield.  This hilly, wooded area was willed to the city of Fairfield by Carrie Lamson Ross in 18930.  Originally "Lamson's Pasture" was a park that included Fairfield's first golf course.  The golf course was in a pasture for cows and pigs along a small woodland, and was dubbed "cow-pasture golf".  It was a favorite area for hiking and nature study for people of all ages.  The woodland was dedicated as a biological state preserve in 1978.
