  • Stroll among wildflowers and prairie grasses near the home
    • The Carrie Chapman Catt Childhood Home near Charles City, Iowa, features a one-acre wildflower and prairie garden, planted just south of the house in late 1997. At one time a walnut grove, the land now features wildflowers and prairie grasses indigenous to the area, including butterfly milkweed, black-eyed Susans, big bluestem, sunflowers and asters. The land appears much as it did, perhaps, when Carrie lived with her family on the farm during the 1860s and 1870s.
