Known as the “Rose Capital of Iowa,” State Center is a charming community that recalls the nostalgic memories of times gone by on Main Street by mingling historic preservation with modern business practice to provide a unique and interesting atmosphere and the personalized customer service that is a distinctive signature of small town Iowa.
As the name implies, State Center lies near the geographic center of Iowa. It is located on US Highway 30 and is only a 20 minute drive from Marshalltown, 30 minutes from Ames, and 45 minutes from Des Moines. The original Lincoln Highway, the first transcontinental highway, goes through State Center’s Main Street.
