Economic Impact of Travel
Harvey Sornsen’s crazy idea to bring a Danish Windmill to Elk Horn as a tourist attraction has been a great success. Since 1976, the Danish Windmill has received Iowa Tourism Attraction of the Year three times–in 1990, 2008 and 2014. The Museum of Danish America (formerly known as the Danish Immigrant Museum) received the same honor in 1994.
Tourism works for Iowa…and the Danish Villages. It generates jobs in our communities, brings new spending and associated tax revenue to Iowa. It supports community “quality of life” assets enjoyed by both residents and visitors and helps portray Iowa as a good place to live, work and do business.
