Visit A Replica Pioneer Cabin At the Richard Proenneke Museum In Iowa

Hundreds of famous Americans were born in Iowa, including John Wayne, Herbert Hoover, and Grant Woods. One often overlooked Iowa native, though, is the naturalist and wilderness writer Richard Pronneke. If you’re looking for a unique place to spend a day, make time to visit the Richard Proenneke museum in Iowa. Here, you’ll find remnants of a life in the Alaskan wilderness as documented by a man who lived in the mountains alone for more than 30 years.
