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.
