Leave behind the stress of today’s world and savor the unpretentious lifestyle of an earlier age. The scenic back roads of our county are home to the largest settlement of Conservative Amish and Mennonites west of the Mississippi. Kalona is also the self proclaimed quilt capitol of Iowa, and the area boasts an amazing number of attractions. Stroll through the Kalona Historical Village, take a tour of the countryside with informative guides, view beautifully manicured gardens, magnificent hand-stitched quilts in two prestigious galleries, and watch demonstrations of lost arts, such as noodlemaking. The town of Kalona features a renovated downtown district with charming antique & furniture stores, crafts shops, quilt vendors, and delightfully unique boutiques. The Riverside Casino and Golf Resort is only 10 miles east, and the first loop of the Washington County Barn Quilts meanders through the area. For more information, click on the two links below.
