Huxley, IA

Outdoor lovers, we have just the community for you within the Story County limits – Huxley. Incorporated in 1902, this city, nicknamed Heart of the Prairie, boasts a 45-acre wildlife refuge, where you can be one with nature.

Build a fire and camp, explore the land’s shrubbery and trees, go birdwatching and, in mid-June, pick wild raspberries and mulberries.

Huxley stages the annual Huxley Prairie Fest, which began in 1994 and includes food, inflatables, live music, sand volleyball, a parade, a petting zoo and a beer tent.
