WYATT EARP: PELLA BOY

Pella is home to one of the most famous (or infamous?) characters of the Old West. Wyatt Earp moved with his family to Pella in 1850, when Wyatt was 2 years old, from Monmouth, Illinois. For 14 years the Earp family farmed in the Pella area, and Wyatt’s father, Nicholas Earp, worked as a recruiter for the Union Army. Learn more about Wyatt's life by clicking here.

The boyhood home of Wyatt Earp and his family still stands in its original location as part of the Historical Village. You can learn more about the house through this link.

The Boyhood Home of Wyatt Earp is currently undergoing renovations. Although the inside is closed, visitors to the Historical Village can view the progress on its restoration.
