Experience the rich history and natural beauty of Bagley, a rural community nestled in the heart of west-central Iowa. Established in 1881, our town was born from the endless prairie and blossomed with the construction of the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul railroad, which transformed the region and brought new opportunities for growth and development. Today, the existing railbed has been thoughtfully repurposed by private interests, paving the way for a stunning recreational trail that could extend from Herndon to Coon Rapids.
Access to Bagley is easy via State Hwy 141, and our town is proudly served by top-notch utility providers, including Alliant Energy, Mid American Energy, Xenia Rural Water, Panora Fiber, and Windstream. Local school-aged children attend the highly regarded Panorama Community School District, located just a short drive away in the charming town of Panora.
As of the 2020 census, 233 residents call Bagley home, and we’re excited to welcome you into our tight-knit community. Discover the warmth, hospitality, and natural beauty of Bagley today!
