Hold Your Next Event in a Victorian Setting
Originally constructed in 1882, the Wallace House has been restored to a fine example of a Victorian residence. “Uncle Henry” Wallace moved to the house in 1895 when he co-founded Wallaces’ Farmer, a farm journal. It is now an important part of the Sherman Hill National Historic District in Des Moines. The first floor space provides a gracious, historic setting for gatherings of all kinds.
