Odebolt, IA - Iowa Rural Schools Museum

Point of Interest in Odebolt, IA

The Iowa Rural Schools Museum captures the spirit and pride of Iowa's rural past. The school once stood in Richland Township, Sac County, Iowa, and was known as Willow Tree or Richland #1. In October 2011 the school was moved to the nearby town of Odebolt by the Rural Legacy Project committee and has been restored to the Victorian look it had when it opened in 1883. It is representative of the 12,623 schools that were part of the Iowa rural schools system and helped shape Iowa's rural development and character. This museum celebrates the contributions of rural schools in Iowa.
