Whether its the small town life, the excellent schools, the recreational activities, or the proximity to Iowa City and excellent medical facilities, people come to Wellman for many reasons.

Wellman is a small rural community consisting of about 1500 people, located in the Northwest corner of Washington County, in Lime Creek Township.  Wellman has the bragging rights of being located in some of the most beautiful rolling countryside of Washington County.  Wellman isn't just a bedroom community to the greater Iowa City area, it is a functioning and thriving independent community.  Students living in Wellman are located in the

community clubs that work together to better the community. 

One of Wellman's most popular events is their Fourth of July celebration, which is second to none.  July 4th celebrations have been a tradition in Wellman for many years with people coming from near and far to experience Wellman's parade, fireworks, and all day events.  
The day starts off with kiddies parade at 9:30 AM on Main Street followed by the main parade at 10:00.  Following the parade various events are held in the community including pie throwing contest and other family-fun events.  The downtown Heritage museum is ope for tours as well as historic buildings at the heritage Park on 7th Ave. 

Feel like play a relaxing round of golf?  The Wellman Golf Course  is a privately owned nine-hole sand greens course. There are only two sand green courses left in Iowa and visitors are welcome to try this unique golfing experience. Several tournaments are scheduled throughout the season.

The club offers a minimum service club house, three cart sheds, and an honor system for out of town golfers to pay the greens fee. There is a lock box located outside the club house to deposit your fee.
