City of Rutland....Pride of the Prairie!

The City of Rutland is more like a big family than a small town. Classic Americana, unparalleled community spirit, and a true sense of historical, cultural, and natural heritage are just a few of the core principles that makes the City of Rutland a wonderful place to call home. Rutland may be in the middle of nowhere but it is in the middle of everything.
