About Dell Rapids
Dell Rapids South Dakota is a small community of 3,650 people found along the Big Sioux River, just east of I-29. We are a short 20 minutes north of Sioux Falls, South Dakota’s largest city. Dell Rapids is rich in history dating back to 1871. Our historic district consists of 39 buildings on Main Street, the towns primary business center. The most striking factor of the district is the use of rose colored quartzite as a facing material on almost all buildings. The majority of the buildings were built before 1903 and several have been restored to their turn of the century elegance, offering unique gifts, entertainment, and dining opportunities.
