Cornell College is located on a wooded hilltop in the heart of Mount Vernon, Iowa, a charming town in the middle of Iowa's thriving Cultural Corridor. The entire campus is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and our gothic chapel can be seen for miles around.

Just a few blocks down the hill, Mount Vernon's main street boasts another National Historic District, hip clothing and antiques stores, and lots of really great coffee.
