Wessington is a beautiful, rural community located in east-central South Dakota. Our residents enjoy a wonderful quality of life as well as a rich proud history dating back to America's Pioneer Days. Plentiful pheasant hunting, productive farmland, and the peaceful rolling Wessington Hills are among the notable resources of the Wessington area.  Wessington offers countless opportunities for small business and commercial investment. The Wessington Economic Development Corporation strengthens the economic climate through business leadership that fosters community prosperity. Wessington, South Dakota, USA!

Please note: Wessington, South Dakota, and Wessington SPRINGS, South Dakota, are two different towns. Often times the media or uneducated folks confuse the two. We forgive you, but letís clear up the confusion. Wessington, SD, is its own separate entity. We welcome you for a visit and this should help you remember to separate the two.
