Indianola Hometown Pride was awarded a grant for $73,300 from the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs for the “Wonder on Buxton” project. The project aims to connect the Indianola downtown square to Simpson College by “creating a vibrant area that invites visitors and celebrates Indianola’s cultural identity.” Hometown Pride will be installing a sculpture series, a storytelling tour, outdoor gathering spaces, and light pole art and sidewalk inlays in addition to other improvements along Buxton St.
