Iowa Rural Schools Museum Exterior


The museum grounds are located in a charming heritage square in Odebolt, Iowa.


Outside the school is a delightful, life-sized sculpture of children called "Time for School" by Dr. William Faller, nationally known for his country school works.


In 2015 a new sculpture was added, donated by the Gronemeyer family in memory of  P. Dale and Marge Gronemeyer. It is entitled "Recess" and depicts children playing on a tire swing. 


The museum sits next to a restored Pioneer Home and across the street from the Odebolt Historical Museum.
