Traveling Around Davis County

Explore one of Bloomfield’s little-known gems!

A mail order catalog home provides the foundation for one of Bloomfield’s little-known gems.  In this little house are all kinds of treasures – from handcrafted gifts to travel information that allows you to explore this corner of Iowa and beyond.

The Davis County Welcome Center, located at 301 North Washington Street, is three blocks north of Bloomfield’s Courthouse Square on Highway 63.  The Welcome Center has its home in a house built in the early 1900’s.  It is believed that this home was ordered from a 1910 Sear and Roebuck catalog and was purchased from a kit for about $1800.  The house has been restored through the generous donations of materials and thousands of hours of volunteer labor.

What makes this Welcome Center extra special is the people and the choices of gifts, souvenirs and travel information available.  Staffed by wonderful volunteers, there are all sorts of treasures to be discovered!
