Walk of Fame

Simon Estes, world famous opera star and member of the Iowa Walk of Fame

Shenandoah's downtown revitalized streetscape includes the "Walk of Fame", 125 Iowa-shaped sidewalk plaques located along Sheridan Avenue paying tribute to famous Iowans, from former Presidents of the United States and scientists to famous artists and musicians. Lee Gingery, a former Shenandoah council member, came up with the idea to create the Iowa Walk of Fame as part of the town's streetscape project. Stop by the Chamber at 100 S. Maple to pickup a "Walk of Fame" guidebook to follow along the four and one half block, Sherdan Avenue "Walk of Fame". Famous Shenandoahans include the Blackwood Brothers, the Everly Brothers, Henry Field, Dr. W. Eugene Lloyd, Earl May, Jesse Field Shambaugh and Charlie Hayden.
