We are an archive of stories, photographs, and interviews about life in small town America. Located in Perry, Iowa, we collect and tell the history of our city, our state, and ultimately our nation, through the eyes of the people that lived here. Our collection includes a vast photo history of our city and the respective waves of immigration that built it. Our goal is to bring life to our rich social history and the arts through the study of how our city was formed by the immigrants who settled here to find a better life and the contributions that they made. Our hope is to show through our history that the things that brought families here a century ago are not so different from those of today.
