American Gothic House Tours

Tours of the American Gothic House will take place April 11, May 9, June 13, July 11, August 8, September 12, and October 10 from 10:00 am-4:00 pm. Admission to the house and American Gothic House Center is free.

Please note: Tours of the house will only feature the downstairs portion of the house. The steep stairs, short ceilings, and lack of handrails prohibit safe access to the upstairs.

Due to the historic features of the house and grounds, accessibility for visitors with limited mobility can be challenging. Guests with wheelchairs and walkers may find the terrain to the house difficult to maneuver. In addition, the entrance has two steps (one step to the rear porch, one step to enter the house). We will make every effort to respond and accommodate visitors’ needs. If you have additional questions about accessibility, please call 641-652-3352 or email

The adjacent American Gothic House Center, “photo-op” area, and parking lot are all accessible.
