Walnut Named to Fodor's 10 Best Antiquing Towns in the U.S.
Fodor's Travel has named Walnut, Iowa to its 10 best list for antique destinations in the United States.
Known as Iowa's Antique City, the community celebrates its destination status with an annual town-wide antique show that attracts 300 dealers from across the country each June. Start your day at The Barn Mall, an actual barn featuring 34 vendor booths on two floors with a third floor dedicated to an assortment of vintage chairs. Continue on to the Vintage Bulldog, where classic cameras, long-forgotten radios, and retro fans are among the highlights.
Insider Tip: The Walnut Mural Project re-introduced the town in 2001 to colorful wall paintings of the bygone-era of the 1900’s. While in Walnut, seek out the murals and look for the letter on each one spelling Walnut. (There’s a map and a key to each mural in the visitor’s center.)
