America's Coolest Small Towns - Mount Vernon, Iowa

The "American Gothic" painting was recreated on a barn near Mount Vernon, Iowa by Iowan Mark Benesh. It was my chosen landscape contribution to the 50 States Project. Mount Vernon, Iowa was chosen as one of the "10 coolest towns in America". Thisbe Nissen, good friend and writer, wrote the short essay describing why Mount Vernon is a very cool town.
