The Iowa Yearly Meeting House is a historic church in Oskaloosa, Iowa. The church was designed by A.T. Simmons in Colonial Revival style and completed in 1913. The church replaced a simple structure from 1865 as part of an effort to draw more patrons to the Quaker church.  The church gained its name from the yearly Quaker meeting held here.

Anamosa Public Library

The Anamosa Public Library, an example of Romanesque Revival, was built by Dwight H. Perkins. The building is unique because it was built using exclusively private funds. Community members began campaigning for the library in 1900 after a community member named Walter S. Benton donated $10,000 to the city for purchasing library books. Benton’s donation was based on the expectation that the city would build a library by 1903. When the city failed to follow through with the project Miss “Lou” Shaw took charge and raised the necessary construction funds.
