American Gothic House & Center

Show Contact Information +
Grant Wood's painting American Gothic brought this 1880s house notice as the backdrop of the famous image of a Midwest farmer and his daughter. Hundreds of parodies and takeoffs have made it a popular cultural icon that is one of the most recognized in the world. Take your own American Gothic photo in front of the 1930s exterior, or see the original interior during monthly tours April through October and other special programs. Tour the adjacent visitor's center to learn about Grant Wood's life and the history of the house. Props provided at the visitor's center will allow you to create your own American Gothic portrait.
