Welcome to the Frontpage

Welcome to the Harker House!

We invite you to take a step back in time with us by touring one of the first stately homes built in Storm Lake.

The Harker House located at the corner of 3rd Street and Lake Avenue in Storm Lake was originally built in 1874, completed in 1875, and remains as it was when the Harker family left the home to the Harker House Board for preservation as a historic treasure for future generations.

The home contains most of the vintage furniture owned by three generations of the Harker Family who first arrived in Storm Lake by the railroad in 1874.

The Home is open for individual and group tours on a regular schedule during the summer and by appointment.  For more information please visit our tour page.  You can also learn more about the family and Storm Lake on through our web page.

Nothing is like an original tour, and we invite you and your family to visit the house and experience first hand a unique and finely preserved historic home.

We look forward to your visit!
