Once Abandoned And Left To Decay, The Centennial In Iowa Has Been Restored To Its Former Glory

Iowa’s historic buildings are a sight to behold, and you can usually find at least one famous spot in every Iowa town. Of course, sometimes these buildings are a shadow of their former selves. It’s common to see boarded-up storefronts or worn facades. They might be great architectural sites – but it still feels like something is missing. Well, in the small central city of Jefferson, one city has an unexpected second arc. A community-focused group of investors spearheaded the renovation of what was once the Centennial Bank. The historic facade has been preserved and touched up, and this restored Iowa building is now home to The Centennial, a charming new restaurant serving classic comfort food in a classy environment. Drop by, have a meal, and enjoy the fine food and long history!
