History[edit]

Prior to 1969, the route that is now designated as Iowa 39 was designated as Iowa Highway 4.[3] This version of Iowa 4 once connected Hamburg and Spirit Lake along the current routings of U.S. Route 275, U.S. Route 59, and U.S. Route 71.[4] In 1969, when many routes were renumbered, Iowa 4 was redesignated as Iowa Highway 39.[5]
