4-H Schoolhouse Museum – Clarion, Iowa
Clarion offers its visitors a tour of the 1907 schoolhouse, completely furnished, in which the idea for the emblem for 4-H, a national organization for young people interested in agriculture, was first formulated. O. H. Benson visualized the use of the four-leaf clover as the group’s symbol. Included in the displays are items and uniforms from early 4-H clubs.
