Charles City is more than just the WhiteWater park, we are a Main Street Iowa community and part of the Silos and Smokestacks National Heritage Area.Our community is the birthplace of the gasoline powered tractor engine and the girlhood home of suffragette Carrie Chapman Catt. Our new Riverfront Park features a whitewater course, 100 plus seat amphitheatre, ravine play area, labyrinth and storm water fountain, and is sure to be a favorite for both visitors and residents.

Charles City is one of Iowa’s original eight Cultural & Entertainment Districts featuring the original art deco Charles Theatre still in operation and the Carnegie Library which is now the Charles City Arts Center. More artwork from local, regional and national artists is on display in the Arts Center and on the Public Art walking tour.

The community is home of an impressive collection of artwork, the Mooney Collection, housed in the Public Library and includes pieces from: Rembrandt, Picasso, Grant Wood and Salvador Dali.  Visitors can also take in the community’s hospitality at events held throughout the year. The community of Charles City works together to get things done.  That’s why we were one of the original communities in Iowa to be named a “Capital Community” by the Federal Home Loan Bank in 2004.  Charles City  was designated as one of Iowa’s Great Places in 2007 and earned honors as a National Champion in the America in Bloom competition in both 2009 and 2010.

With so much to see and do, we invite you to take time to visit and explore America’s Hometown!
