About Iowa Realty Chariton
Chariton is a community of 4,600 people located at the intersection of U.S. Hwy. 34 and State Hwy. 14 in South Central Iowa. Chariton is the county seat of Lucas County. We are less than 30 minutes to I-35 and less than 60 minutes to Des Moines, Iowa's capital. The quality of life is attracting a growning number of people back to Iowa and Lucas County to enjoy the rural experience.
Chariton, Iowa "A Place We Call Home" is much more than a slogan. To those of us who live in Iowa and in Chariton, in particular, it is the secure knowledge that this is where we want to be. We live a slower pace. We breathe clean air and drink clean water. We have a milder four season climate and some of the finest scenery in Iowa is located here. Our children are educated in schools that are not overcrowded or violence prone. We have excellent medical facilities and a thriving historic downtown Square.
We live and work among friends, not strangers. A lot of our living is done outdoors. The ponds, streams, lakes and parks areas are a vital part of why we live here. If you are tired of concrete and stoplights, you must experience the natural wonders of our area for yourself. See how much rooom we have for living and growing. Come and be a part of us!
