Our small, but growing community offers the best of small town living and easy access to city amenities. Conveniently positioned off Interstate 80 and located on Iowa Highway 163, Prairie City is just 20 miles from the bustle of larger communities including Newton, Knoxville, Pella, and Des Moines. But surrounded by Iowa’s tallgrass prairie, Prairie City itself is a peaceful community filled with people who are warm, welcoming, and proud to call this place home.
