The settlement was founded in the early-19th (1833) as a trading post known under the names "Newburg" and "Casey's Landing". It was incorporated as a town (Bloomington) in 1839 but was soon changed to reduce confusion with several other Bloomington-named towns in the Midwest. The town's name is derived from the Indian tribe Mascouten.

Muscatine's economy is largely based on agriculture but also benefits from major manufacturing companies like Bandag (subsidiary of Bridgestone/retread and recap tires), H.J.Heinz Company (food processing), Carver Pump (manufacturer), Bayer Pharma AG, KENT Corporation (Kent Nutrition, Kent Grain Processing, Kent Pet, Musco Lighting, Stanley Consultants), Musser Lumber Company, HNI Corporation (office furniture manufacturer).
