We are committed to providing access to West Des Moines’ history, and we are proud to launch our new online inventory database.
Many items at the Jordan House are incredibly fragile, so they aren’t on display, but they have a story to tell. This ongoing project makes these tucked away treasures viewable! Plus there are documents, such as wills, letters and receipts that can now be used by researchers learning about early Iowa history.
To view the database, please click on Online Collections Database.
Our thanks to Bravo Greater Des Moines and the State of Iowa Historical Society & Iowa Dept. of Cultural Affairs, members and donors for helping make this possible!
