Parker House & Family

Parker House & Family

The Parker Museum is an excellent example of the arts-and-crafts style of architecture. The house was built in 1916 for the Roy Webb family and was later donated to be an historic house museum. This museum showcases the lifestyle of rural Iowa throughout the years and the house's primary residents, the James E. Parker family. The backyard Duroe Building contains a Blacksmith shop as well as an expansive agricultural collection.

The Parker Museum is open by appointment, please call (712) 262-3304 or email info@claycountyheritage.org to schedule a tour.
