Welcome to Story City, Iowa

  • We’re located in central Iowa on Interstate 35—only 10 minutes north of Ames/Iowa State University and 45 minutes north of Des Moines.
  • The Story City Interstate 35 Business Park has an array of companies from Fortune 150 NextEra Energy, to international ISPT and family owned Eby Manufacturing.  The West Industrial Park is anchored by companies such as American Packaging Corp and Lumber Specialties.
  • We’re an Iowa Main Street Community that includes the historic 1913 Story Theatre/Grand Opera House.
  • Story City Community Health and Recreation Center is a partnership with Mary Greely Medical Center that provides a wide range of health and recreational facilities, programs and services for all ages.
  • The Roland-Story Community School District is class 2A with an enrollment of approximately 980 students.
  • The Story City Carousel is an authentic 1913 Herschell-Spillman portable merry-go-round. Our antique carousel is one of less than 200 existing all-wood, hand carved carousels left in the United States. The carousel appeals not only to the avid antique buff but also to families. The low cost of admission, $1, makes it a very affordable form of entertainment.
