*** Notice to our Customers and Friends ***
The laws in the State of Iowa now prevent us from operating and sustaining our business according to our faith without the threat of persecution and fines. As a result, we are forced to close the doors of the beautiful Görtz Haus Gallery by the end of July, 2015. (Odgaards v. Iowa)
We extend our deepest appreciation to our loyal patrons and supporters here in Grimes, across Iowa, across the nation and literally around the world. Thank You!
Inspired by their experiences, the Odgaards have organized God’s Original Design Ministry, a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation to advance Christian teachings, Biblical ordinances and natural laws as God intended.
Thank you very much for your continued support!
The Görtz Haus Gallery is located in an elegant landmark stone building that served as the home of St. Peter Lutheran Church from 1937 to 2001. Having outgrown this space, the church moved to a new facility. The notable structure was left susceptible to demolition -- but perseverance saved this historic building from demise, and in April 2002 the gracious space was reopened, unveiling a fabulous new bistro, art gallery, frame shoppe and floral shoppe. Original works of art, jewelry, gifts, home decor, and beautiful flower arrangements enhance a fine dining experience in the historic Governors District of Grimes. The picturesque setting of Görtz Haus makes it the perfect venue for a Christmas party, baby shower, birthday party, family reunion or other special events.
