Small Town of the Day ‘Dell Rapids’

Dell Rapids, South Dakota is today’s Small Town of the Day.  Know what?  When it comes to small town websites, they have an awesome spot. It says this about Dell Rapids.

Welcome to Dell Rapids, South Dakota, one of the most distinctive and colorful communities on the Dakota Plains. The identity of Dell Rapids is tied to a rich vein of red quartzite that runs 2,600 feet deep and hundreds of miles between the Wisconsin Dells and eastern South Dakota. The outcroppings of quartzite inspired the century-old quarry industry and the unique downtown

architecture of Dell Rapids. Even our public high school adopted with pride the nickname “Quarriers.”

Established on the banks of the Big Sioux River in 1871, this community of 3,650 people is less than 20 miles from Sioux Falls, South Dakota’s largest city. Dell Rapids has enjoyed the advantages of being close to Interstate 29 and Sioux Falls while retaining its rock-solid identity as home to the Dells of the Big Sioux. Dell Rapids’ Historic Main Street dates back to 1888 and includes among its attractions, the Dell Rapids Museum,and the Rose Stone Inn bed and breakfast. The Dells Theater has been an art deco fixture downtown since 1938.


When it comes to Small Towns and some of the things they’re know for, Dell Rapids would most likely be associated with Baseball.  It’s a baseball town for sure!

When it comes to schools, the backbone of any community Dell Rapids is more than proud of their public schools and Dell Rapids St. Mary’s.
