About Us

Welcome to the City of Rutland! Our town, in the southeastern part of the State, has about 195 residents. Rutland is a great place to raise kids, start a business, build lifelong friendships, and enjoy retirement. Whether you are moving back or just moving in to the community, we are happy to have you here and hope you enjoy life in our town.  

The City of Rutland is more like a big family rather 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.

Since 1984, Rutland has held Uffda Day annually on the first Sunday in October, only missing the 2020 celebration due to COVID restrictions. We celebrate our ethnic heritage with a parade, demonstrations, car show, antique tractors, horse drawn farming, crafts, quilt show, and ethnic foods. Join us for the fun every October!
