Welcome to Iowa 80 Trucking Museum - Walcott, Iowa

The City of Walcott may be a small rural community of 1,551 people as per the 2020 Census, but it definitely has a lot to offer those who are exploring Historic U.S. Route 6. All that is missing is a Route 6 Museum and Visitors Center.

Anyway, something to think about!

Welcome to Brooklyn, Iowa
The Community of Flags

Thanks to Rusty Clayton, President of the Brooklyn True Value Hardware Store, he was able to have this mural painted on the side of his building with community financial support. The painting was done in 2015 by local artist Scott Hawkins. Historic Highway U.S. Route 6 passes right thru downtown Brooklyn. Travelers from around the country come to have their pictures taken beside the mural.
