Community Room Rental

by Aug 17, 2016

We love tour groups!

The Boone County Historical Society enjoys hosting group tours of all sorts. From scout troops to tour buses and antique car clubs, we can accommodate a variety of groups.


Currently, all of our museums are closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. When we reopen, tours should be arranged well in advance. Contact us at or call 515-432-1907 and leave a message. Since the Center is not staffed regularly, emailed questions get answered more quickly.

Host an Event at The Boone History Center

The Boone History Center is a unique, affordable, and comfortable venue for special events. From important meetings, to bridal showers and anniversaries, our facility is the perfect place to create lasting memories. Housed in a former masonic temple that was built in 1907, our basement community room can accommodate up to 130 people, has a fully-functioning kitchen, and is handicapped-accessible.

Our first floor exhibition space creates a unique atmosphere for meetings and events that do not plan to serve food. This space is only available by special arrangement.
