Perhaps you’ve heard of the “Bridges of Madison County” movie and book? Yes, Winterset is the quaint town in which the movie was set as our county is home to the beautiful seven covered bridges. Madisonians also take pride in being the birthplace of John Wayne and home to his birthplace museum. Winterset is a short 20 miles from Des Moines, making for an easy commuter trip. Winterset’s town square is vibrant with the recently renovated and beautiful “The Iowa” movie theatre, Northside Cafe, Quilt Museum, old time soda fountain/pharmacy and a host of boutique shops and eateries. The townsquare is something you expect to find in a Hallmark movie! Our family walks to the square for everything from errands to the annual Covered Bridge Festival, frequent live music events, farmers markets and everything in between. This small town has a pulse like no other with the convenience of Des Moines just up the road.
