Montrose is a small South Dakota community of approximately 480 people located along the banks of the Vermillion River.  The town offers a seasonal campground and pool. The downtown offers Security State Bank, Post Office, Raggedy Ann's furniture and decor, CJ's at the Wellington restaurant, The Office Bar, and the Montrose Gas Plus convenience store.  Montrose also offers a Public School for grades K-12, as well as City Daycare, which provides preschool classes.  It is home to 3 churches: St Patrick's Catholic Church, St John's Lutheran and Montrose United Methodist.  Come visit us or check us out as a place to reside. We're just a short commute east to Sioux Falls, or west to Mitchell.
