Exhibit will make you proud of heritage

I am excited to learn that the original “American Gothic” is coming to Iowa.

As readers travel to Des Moines to see the famous painting and the excellent exhibit at the Des Moines Art Center, I hope they remember that Eldon is the home of the house that inspired the painting.

The current exhibit at the American Gothic House Center teaches visitors about how Grant Wood came to visit Eldon, which led to his discovery of our little white house.

Please visit the center to brush up on our local history before traveling to see the original piece of art. It will make you proud of our southeast Iowa heritage.
