Rural Heritage Center and Museum, located in Elkader, Iowa along State Highway 13, is housed in a historic 1919 livestock sales pavilion. Telling the story of rural life was one man’s obsession. He collected thousands of items, from household to tractors, spanning the mid 1800s to the 20th Century.  Spending a day at the center will allow you the opportunity to see and understand how pioneers grew agriculture in America.
