American Gothic House Center

Built by the City of Eldon and operated by the Wapello County Conservation Board, this new visitor center opened on June 9, 2007. Visitors can enjoy interpretive exhibits that examine Grant Wood's role in Midwest Regional Art and take a look at many examples of parodies of the American Gothic painting. Visitors can find the perfect memory of the Gothic House in the gift shop or borrow a costume and pitchfork to make your own American Gothic portrait in front of the original house.
