Pella Historical Village is a collage of more than twenty buildings, some more than 150 years old. Others were built later or Historical village with Vermeer Mill in the backgroundmoved in and restored in keeping with our Dutch heritage. These structures are nestled in a courtyard laced with brick walkways.

The Pella Historical Society is a nonprofit organization and depends on donations, memberships and grants to maintain its historic properties and ethnic traditions.

Beautiful, clean. No beer. No smoking. Not even bad language. Even preaching on the street, parade and preshow was excellent. Loved it all, plan to go for 2 days next time. Just feel so good and happy after such a rewarding experience. Thank you, Pella residents, each one, for all your hard work over the years.

Pella, IA is a Dutch area and in its downtown, it has a little village with numerous old buildings that is included with the admission to the Vermeer Mill Windmill tour. The village includes a blacksmith shop, an old library and Wyatt Earp's home. It takes about. 45 minutes to tour all the buildings. Definitely worth the price. It is similar to Naperville, IL's Naper Settlement.

All was fine. Too bad they do not have some folks inside village like they have for the wind mill. He was great

The windmill tour is definitely worth it. The outdoor museum is very interesting but kids get bored here very quickly

Very cute mock village. We visited during the tulip festival and had a blast! Take them time to see if you have extra time.
