Appanoose County is a county located in the U.S. state of Iowa. The population was 12,884 in the 2010 census, a decline from 13,721 in 2000. Its county seat is Centerville.

The county was once a major coal-mining region. In recent decades, the state has made an effort to develop manufacturing as an alternate form of employment. A Rubbermaid plant was the county's largest private employer, until the company announced, in June 2006, that the plant, located in the Centerville industrial park, would close in October 2006.
