About Valley Junction

The Soul of West Des Moines

Historic Valley Junction is the gathering place that is the heart and soul of West Des Moines — a delightful mix of old and new, bridging generations with unique shops, vibrant events and a walkable hometown feel.

    Our Mission

    The Historic Valley Junction Foundation’s mission is to guide the evolution of the original Historic Valley Junction district by preserving and honoring our historic character, supporting small businesses, and connecting the community.

      We have been a proud Main Street Iowa program since 1987, using the Four Point Approach (c) to historic commercial district revitalization. The Historic Valley Junction Foundation is accredited annually by Main Street Iowa for Main Street America. We encourage you to learn more!
