The Iowa Tribe Community Building was completed in 1940 on tribal lands of the Iowa Tribe of Kansas and Nebraska reservation, about five miles west of White Cloud. It is nominated to the National Register of Historic Places as part of the New Deal-Era Resources of Kansas multiple property nomination as an example of the Civic property type defined by the multiple property submission. The community building is nominated under Criterion A for its local significance in the areas of Government, Social History, and American Indian Ethnic Heritage. The building was constructed by tribal members as part of the New Deal-era Civilian Conservation Corps' Indian Division (CCC-ID), a subset of the Works Progress Administration (WPA). The building has served the needs of the Iowa Tribe community over the years as a meeting place for cultural and social events, dances, powwows, funerals, feasts, religious services, social programs, tribal government meetings, and administration.
