Whittemore, Iowa is a family oriented community with strong moral values and clean, wholesome living. We enjoy a low crime rate, active Main Street with potential for growth, well-kept clean neighborhoods, and a livable tax base. Our citizens are friendly down-to-earth people, and the town is conveniently located in the Northwestern part of the state, close enough to large cities to make travel accessible, yet far enough away to maintain our quiet standard of living.
The town motto, "Whittemore Cares More, Shares More", is more than a mere slogan. It's an accurate description of who we are.
