We went to Eldon, Iowa to see the original home that Grant Wood used as a background for his famous “American Gothic” painting. Don’t let the run down appearance of Eldon scare you away, the American Gothic Museum is first class; i.e. modern, very well done with knowledgeable and dedicated staff.
The Staff provides costumes in various sizes so you can imitate the famous scene, all for free. We had some fun taking several selfies.
If you’ve got no where to go and no place to be, give Eldon, Iowa a try … but fill your tank with gas and bring your own lunch.
