    DO NOT BYPASS THE VISITOR CENTER; IT IS OUTSTANDING. Two ladies were on duty when we were there and they could not have been nicer. They added so much to our visit, not the least of which was taking our photo in front of the house!

    Here are some photos taken in the visitor center. CLICK THE PHOTO TO ENLARGE AND TO SEE THEM ALL.

    GRANT WOOD PAINTED THIS HOUSE BEHIND THE now-famous couple. You can get your own photo taken (no charge) in front of the house. If you like you can don slip-on costumes (available in many sizes) for your photos.

    The information center is outstanding. Find out why Grant Wood picked this house in this town. Find out who the two people are in the painting!
