Fundraising Has Begun!
Fundraising has begun for the Tuttle Learning Walkway. This is a City of Pella project where the Historic Pella Trust will be raising 100% of the funding. Our goal is to raise $200,000 dollars! The Tuttle Learning Walk will join two of Pella’s treasures, the 1843 Tuttle Cabin with Sunken Garden Park to provide enjoyment and education both to Pella citizens and visitors alike. Historic Pella Trust is excited to move forward with the Learning Walk!
