About me: Many of us have grown up believing that it takes forever for historical charm to develop in neighborhoods. Prepare to alter your thinking. With Prairie Trail, a sense of instant charm is already developing. The planned community is an extension of Uptown Ankeny, which is adjacent on the north side. With historical home styles already popping up, a new/old small-town Iowa community is taking shape. With parks and trails to experience, welcoming neighborhoods to walk through, and front porches to wave from, Prairie Trail will evoke a gentler time and place.
