House Open

  • American Gothic House & Center 300 American Gothic St. Eldon, IA 52554 (map)

Stop by between 10am and 4pm to get a rare inside look at the Gothic House. No booking or tickets required, and admission is free. Our adjacent visitor center will be open its usual hours of 10am to 5pm. For more details on visiting our center, which is open every day, year-round (excluding major holidays), click here.

As this event is made possible by our volunteers who generously donate their time, please ensure you arrive with enough time to see the Gothic House before it closes at 4pm.

PLEASE NOTE: Visitors to the house will only be allowed to tour the ground floor, as the stairs to the second floor are steep, winding, and have no handrail. In addition, the House is not easily accessible for individuals with mobility issues, as there is a slight hill leading up to the house, 2 steps to get onto the porch, and one step to get inside the house.
