548. The Scholte House, Pella, Iowa, built in the winter and spring of 1847-1848, was the fulfillment of a promise Dominie Hendrik Scholte made to his wife Mareah to alleviate her homesickness and disappointment. He had promised to build her a house with all the comforts of the home she had left in The Netherlands. The last Scholte descendant to live in the house was Leonora Gaass Hettinga. She gave the house to the Pella Historical Society in 1979 for use as a museum. The collection includes numerous paintings by one of Iowa's greatest artists, G. H. Nollen.
