Geocache Description:

American Gothic house. Made famous by Iowa artist Grant Wood as the background house in his painting of the Iowa father and daughter.




Wood had just returned from Europe and was amazed to find a Gothic window in an Iowa farmhouse. He used the window's shape as the motif for the painting "American Gothic". Although not open to the public, visitors are welcome to view the house from the outside as Grant Wood did in 1930 when he was inspired by its unusual Gothic window. The State Historical Society of Iowa owns and preserves the American Gothic House. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The coordinates listed for this virtual cache are on the front lawn where visitors normally stand to have their pictures taken.

To log this as a find, strike an American Gothic pose and take a photograph of yourself in front of the small white house that stands there today. And of course, include your GPSR in the photograph. You don’t have to be a male-female couple to qualify. Do it as an individual or as a group then upload your picture to this web page.

NOTE: DO NOT LOG YOUR FIND UNTIL YOU ARE ALSO ABLE TO LOG YOUR PHOTO AT THE SAME TIME. OTHERWISE I WILL HAVE TO DELETE YOUR FOUND LOG.

Additional Hints (No hints available.)
