About Us

Living Loess – Partners in Loess Hills Living 

Living Loess is a collaboration of nine artisan attractions located within 20 miles of each other. We are nestled in the Loess Hills in Pottawattamie and Harrison counties in western Iowa.  This private/public coalition was established to encourage visitors and residents to explore the Loess Hills in both their uniqueness and creative culture.

We invite you to discover that  blend between nature and our showrooms that reveal a unique sense of place.
