Employment Application

Welcome to Rosholt!

Rosholt, SD is located in the NE corner of SD, 7 Miles off I-29 on exit 246. We are a South Dakota Gold Community located on the southern edge of the Red River Valley. The soil is fertile, and has provided the area with bountiful crops year after year. Corn, soybeans, and wheat are the backbone of the agriculture economy.

A brief history of Rosholt starts when the Sisseton-Wahpeton Reservation was opened for settlement in 1892 with a “Run” for property. The run came under the “Homestead Law”. Under the Homestead Law, no land could be bought at any price, but farms were given free to any citizen who would live on them. It was early in 1913 that a reservation citizens group approached Julius who was a well-known railroad promoter and entrepreneur. Mr. Rosholt met with the group and presented them with an impressive plan for a proposed railroad. The town of Rosholt was born out of the hopes, dreams, optimism and entrepreneurial courage of Julius Rosholt and a visionary citizenry. The first lots in Rosholt were sold on August 11th, 1913. The town was born and has thrived on the economy of agriculture.

Rosholt is a community with a big heart, a strong work ethic and a sense of community. Main Street includes a medical clinic, gas and service station, car dealership, flower & gift shop, hair salon, post office, insurance office, furniture store, mortuary, bank, trucking business, and liquor sales. Within blocks of Main Street is a newspaper and printing office, a museum, salon & spa, a gas/convenience store, the region's largest grain elevator with rail site, corn ethanol plant, café, full-service auto repair, lumber yard, and RV campground. We are very fortunate to have an advanced K-12 school system, were named a "distinguished school", whose students' ACT scores currently ranked 10th highest in the state. We also have a fully-equipped medical clinic, assisted living facility, volunteer fire department and EMT-certified ambulance service.
