About Flandreau, SD

Heart of Eastern South Dakota

Located 40 minutes’ drive north of Sioux Falls and seven miles east of I-29, Flandreau, South Dakota was originally settled in 1857, making it one of the oldest cities in the state. During the “Dust Bowl” era, Flandreau was commonly referred to as the “Garden Spot of the Dakotas” since it is nestled along the banks of the Big Sioux River. The city continues to flourish while serving as the county seat of Moody County. Flandreau’s close proximity to Sioux Falls, one of fastest growing urban areas in the United States, affords residents the luxury of small-town living with convenient access to the cultural amenities and services of a larger city.

While the weather of the northern plains is the stuff of legend, living in southeastern South Dakota offers many advantages that include four distinctly beautiful seasons in which a wide variety of recreational opportunities are possible; low crime rates; and one of the lowest tax rates in the nation. In 2004, a new elementary school was completed; the town’s Industrial Park was expanded; and a new $1.3 million aquatic center opened. The nearby Royal River Casino and Motel, operated by the Santee Sioux Tribe, draws visitors from throughout the area. All in all, if you’re looking for a great quality of life, Flandreau has it!
