BOYHOOD HOME OF WYATT EARP

The Boyhood Home of Wyatt Earp was built in 1855 by the brothers B.H. and J.H.H. Van Spanckeren, who used the building as a home and merchant-tailor store. The architecture is rare in the Midwest; its 18th century Dutch style is normally only seen in the Netherlands or eastern United States.

The Earp family lived in the Van Spanckeren Row House in the bottom floor apartment during the Civil War. Since then, many people have lived and worked inside the building. It has become a landmark which people from across the country have visited Pella to see.

In 1966, the Van Spanckeren Row House became the first official office of the Pella Historical Society and Museums and the starting point of the Historical Village Museum. In 1990, the Van Spanckeren Row House was named on the National Register of Historic Places, both for its unique architectural design and because of its famous tenant, Wyatt Earp.

Currently, the Wyatt Earp House is undergoing renovations to restore its original exposed brick siding and update its many exhibits.
