Area code 515
Despite its relatively modest population, Iowa was originally divided into three area codes running vertically the full length of the state, with the 515 area code covering the central third of the state. In 2000, the eastern and southern portions of 515 were split off as area code 641. Today the 515 area code covers only about one-fourth of its original area, including the city of Des Moines and areas northwest of there.

The metal band Slipknot named one of their songs "515" because the band is from Des Moines.
