The Ames center is about the area of Octagon Center For the Arts and the area of Story Center Historical Museum.

Ames, Iowa, is located about 30 miles north of Des Moines. The city was established in 1864 and owes its origin to founder Cynthia Olive Duff and railroad magnate John Insley Blair. The two established the town as a stop on the Cedar Rapids and Missouri Railroad near the Skunk River. Since those early railroad days, it's become even easier to get to Ames. The town is situated at the intersection of Interstate 35 and U.S. Route 30. Famed U.S. Route 69 also runs through town, as does the Union Pacific Railroad. More from this guide...
