American Gothic

Memorial Day weekend was a good weekend for us, we took 4 days of vacation (my vacation time, Erin was out of school by then).
On Monday, we drove from my parents house in the SE corner of Iowa to visit some college friends who live in a small town near Des Moines. On the way, drove through Eldon and stopped by the American Gothic house. Erin thought this was pretty cool, because she teaches about this painting to her 5th graders.

The house was less than a mile off the highway. Funny how many times I'd driven through that town but never paid attention to this important piece of American heritage.
