Located in north-central Iowa, the city of Britt prides itself as a tight-knit community with a knack for hospitality and fellowship. Once a meager stop on the Chicago, Milwaukee, and St. Paul rail lines, Britt officially became a city in 1881. Today, more than 2,000 residents call Britt home. Key attractions include the Hancock County Agricultural Museum, an extensive collection of restored farm machinery and tools dating back to the 1840s; the Armstrong House—a massive Victorian house built for a Norwegian immigrant who settled in Britt; the Britt Draft Horse Show, which features top-rated Belgian, Percheron, Clydesdale, and Shire performance horses; and the National Hobo Museum, which showcases personal collections of famous American hobos, including Steam Train Maury, the Pennsylvania Kid, Connecticut Slim, the Hard Rock Kid, Frisco Jack, and others. During the warm summer months, residents flock to the Britt Family Aquatic Center for swimming and water slides, take in a round at Britt Golf Course, and attend the popular Hancock County Fair. For a one-day road trip, Britt residents can reach several regional cities in a couple of hours by car, including Des Moines, Iowa; Minneapolis, Minnesota; and Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Located two hours away, Des Moines International Airport offers daily nonstop flights to exciting destinations like San Diego, Los Angeles, Washington D.C., New York City, Orlando, Denver, and more.
