The One and Only Oelwein

Once nicknamed ‘Hub City’ for the railroad lines and automotive shops that sprinkled the town, Oelwein is a progressive community where the amenities of a metro area meet the friendliness and low cost of living you’ll find in a small town. With more than a dozen major employers and a school system dedicated to education, Oelwein is a place where families and businesses alike can thrive.

Nine parks and recreation areas in and around Oelwein provide a wide range of outdoor fun, from camping to fishing and boating on Lake Oelwein. The expansive sports complex, wellness center, and aquatics center create no shortage of physical activity options. Indoor recreation and shopping opportunities are also plentiful in town. Travel seven miles south to Hazelton. You’ll find even more shopping opportunities in one of Iowa’s largest Amish communities, where you can stock up on handmade and home-cooked goods.
