COVID Response

Given the increased rate of COVID in Iowa, The Wallace Centers of Iowa is following CDC guidance. Everyone visiting the Wallace Farm or the Wallace House is expected to wear a mask inside our buildings, regardless of vaccination status. Together we can keep all our staff and guests safe and healthy.

Our Statement

We stand with people of color against racism, violence, and hate. Enriching communities and gathering together is the core of our work at The Wallace Centers of Iowa and how we actualize the Wallace family legacy. Now more than ever, we value our work that creates seats at the table for everyone. As an organization, we are dedicated to equitable, inclusive programming and services where everyone is welcome.
