As the largest city in O’Brien County, Sheldon settled its roots originally along the Sioux City and St. Paul Railroad. As time went on, the highways took more of a formative role in its growth and development; now Iowa Highway 60 and US Highway 18 allow Sheldon to stretch its arms into Minnesota and South Dakota without breaking a sweat.

Sheldon has experienced a bit of a revival with the recent addition of the Highway 60 bypass. Instead of shrinking, as some towns do in such an event, Sheldon has thrived; not only has it welcomed new business and industry, but it also has experienced a new town layout, which residents and visitors love.

Sheldon may be a small town by most of the country’s standards with its 5,188 residents, but it is by no means small in community spirit. You’ll be hard-pressed to find cities twice its size with as many well-attended area events. Its annual Golden Easter Egg Hunt, Crazy Days, Festival of Trees, and Sheldon Celebration Days are a constant reminder to its residents that solid human and business relationships are the real definition of success.

It’s that “it takes a village” sense of community that make Sheldon a place “where families come first” and where residents and local companies haven’t forgotten how important they are to each other.
