Welcome to Odebolt, Iowa

Odebolt is a lovely small town nestled along tree-lined streets, located amid the rolling soybean and corn fields of Sac County in northwest Iowa.  Founded in 1877, the town celebrated its 125th year in June 2002 during its annual celebration, "Creek Days".  Odebolt was for a time considered the "Popcorn Center of the World" and is adjacent to the once-famous Adams Ranch (Fairview Farm).  The town has weathered its years gracefully, and its 1,013 friendly people take great pride in current projects for the beautification and betterment of the community.
