Country Relics Village
“Down On The Farm”   “Stroll Into The Past”
1991 Iowa Tourism Attraction of the Year

A scaled down version of an early 1900s village, Country Relics Village is tastefully detailed with authentic artifacts – children’s furnishings, salesman’s samples, and toys. In addition to the “little” village, the complex includes Century Hall of Miniatures, Just Like ‘Little House On the Prairie’, the original Stanhope Chicago Northwestern Depot and a replica of the Hove and Mathre McCormick Machines dealership.


Come, “Stroll Into The Past”.

 “I have travelled to every State in the United States, and taken in every antique farming and village along the way. Country Relics Village is the best I’ve seen! It is so authentic, so homey, so realistic–I loved it,”
Mrs. Joanne Hill, Humboldt, Iowa
