This Abandoned 19th Century Church Has Been Transformed Into The Most Breathtaking Art Studio In Iowa

Iowa’s countryside is home to some incredible history! The smallest towns in the Hawkeye State each hold stories of their own, and it’s worth making a trip to see the treasures each town is hiding. The little town of Malvern, along the Wabash Trace Nature Trail, is the perfect example of something amazing hiding in plain sight.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

Art Church is available to tour by appointment only. Email [email protected] or call 480-628-9234 to arrange a visit.
