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.
