Swift County has a history of being enterprising
A spirit of entrepreneurism that has been a cornerstone of Swift County’s pioneering perseverance since the county was established with the expansion of the railroads. The initial homesteaders got their 40-acres of land and worked hard to create a sustainable and enjoyable life for their families. Their hard work set the stage for a county that continues to thrive based on the dedication, drive, dynamic energy and work ethic of the people who call it home. Today, this translates into achievements like border-to-border broadband throughout the county – something that is rarely found in rural communities.
Swift County residents are enterprising and make the most of natural resources
Many people choose to live in the county for the abundant natural resources that drive the county’s ag economy and create year-round recreation opportunities. Here, residents and visitors can swim, fish, hunt, ride bikes, snowmobile, hike and spend every weekend enjoying natural beauty. For decades, residents have made their living from these natural resources and those who don’t are still closely connected with the land.
