Come check out Dell Rapids homes and find a delightful small town with a rich history. Located a little over 20 miles north of Sioux Falls, Dells Rapids real estate is a good choice for commuters who love a real hometown feel. However, the local economy is also growing. Thanks to the work of the Dell Rapids Chamber of Commerce, new and established business owners can get business advice and meet other business people for networking and support. The Dell Rapids Economic Development Corporation (DREDC) also helps to support local businesses. Its signature project is the Fiegen Development Park, which will have room for both offices and light industrial when it is complete.
Dell Rapids isn’t all work, though! There are lots of fun things to do around town. The historic downtown area showcases the many gorgeous buildings, constructed in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Their facades use the local Sioux Quartzite, with its distinctive red to pink coloring. The historic downtown is a great place to go for a sandwich or a cup of coffee at Carol’s Country Cafe or LaDelle and Fourth Coffeehouse. One of the major landmarks is the Grand Opera House. The Romanesque Revival building has been recently renovated and plans are being made for staging plays, operas, and symphonies.
Since Dell Rapids sits on a huge vein of Sioux Quartzite, mining and quarrying the stone has played a big part in the history of the city. To celebrate this history, the chamber of commerce hosts Quarry Days every year at the end of June. The weekend-long event includes a parade, three on three basketball tournament, kayak racing, a 5K run/walk, vendors, food, fireworks, and more.
Families looking at Dell Rapids homes will be pleased with the school options in town. The Dell Rapids public schools turn in strong scores on state testing, and the high school has a 98% graduation rate. Parents can also choose St. Mary Catholic School, which goes from kindergarten through 12th grade.
