Realizing ambition through hard work and dedication has defined Ida Grove. Our achievements are personified in castles throughout our city, but our most treasured castle is our community. Our community serves as the foundation for yesterday’s, today’s and tomorrow’s opportunities. From world-class industry to scholarships for tomorrow’s leaders, we pave the future where Castles, Community and Opportunity meet.
