The Iowa Tribe Community Building was completed in 1940 on tribal lands of the Iowa Tribe of Kansas and Nebraska reservation, about five miles west of White Cloud. The 1.5-story stone community building was constructed by tribal members as part of the New Deal-era Civilian Conservation Corps - Indian Division (CCC-ID), a subset of the Works Progress Administration (WPA). The building has served the needs of the Iowa Tribe community over the years as a meeting place for cultural and social events. The three-acre property includes a windbreak to the west of the building that also was constructed in 1940 by the CCC-ID. The Community Building was nominated by the Tribal Historic Preservation Officer (THPO) for the Iowa Tribe of Kansas and Missouri, the first property within the state of Kansas to be nominated by a THPO.
