Welcome to Anamosa, Iowa – Your Hometown


City offices in downtown Anamosa, IA

Anamosa  is a picturesque community situated in the heart of scenic Jones County.  The landscape is rich with rolling green hills, farms and scenic views dotted along the Wapsipinicon River.  This natural beauty has been immortalized in the work of one of Anamosa’s favorite sons, Grant Wood.

While Anamosa has grown and progressed since Grant Wood’s time, we have not lost the small town quality that is hard to find today.  Conveniently located along Highway 151 between Cedar Rapids, Dubuque and Iowa City, Anamosa provides the safety, security and family-centered small town values with easy accessibility to larger cities.
