Whether you are planning to relocate to our small town, or are just planning to visit for an afternoon of
site-seeing, you will agree that Kalona has a perfect mix of the old and the new.
The Kalona area is home to the
oldest Amish Mennonite settlement west of the Mississippi River, which began when three Old Order Amish families established homesteads near Deer Creek in 1846, the year Iowa became a state.
At the same time, this small, yet thriving community accommodates innovative industries, like the cutting-edge medical instruments company which is part of the international high-tech world.
