Nestled in the picturesque landscape of Montour, Iowa, Pilgrim Heights is not just a nonprofit organization but a haven for artists and artisans. Step into our new General Store and prepare to be enchanted by a world of creativity and craftsmanship. Unlike any other store you've visited, every item here is lovingly handmade by local artists and artisans from Pilgrim Heights, ensuring a truly unique shopping experience. But what sets this store apart is its commitment to supporting the creative community. Pilgrim Heights takes no commission from sales, meaning that these talented individuals receive 100% of the profits. By shopping at this remarkable establishment, you not only take home one-of-a-kind treasures but also provide vital support and recognition to the artists who pour their heart and soul into their work.


As you explore the surrounding areas, you'll be greeted by breathtaking landscapes that inspire the local artists' creations. From rolling hills to the serene lake, the beauty of the region is reflected in each piece found in the general store. So, whether you're searching for a handcrafted piece of jewelry, a unique piece of pottery, or a stunning painting, make your way to Pilgrim Heights. Immerse yourself in the artistry of the community, support the local talent, and bring home a treasure that tells a story. Your visit to the new General Store will leave a lasting impact on both the artisans and yourself, creating a connection that transcends the boundaries of art and commerce.
