Welcome to!

Harlan is located in southwest Iowa, approximately 11 miles north of Interstate 80 between Des Moines, Iowa and Omaha, Nebraska at the junction of US Highways 59 and 44.  We have a great little community here in Harlan, also known as the City of Trees.

We hope you will find the site informative and easy to navigate.
