Welcome to DeWitt, the “Crossroads to Opportunity” and a progressive, friendly community. The second-largest community in Clinton County, Iowa, DeWitt is a great place to live, work and play.
DeWitt is a community high in amenities, including a state-of-the- art hospital and attached nursing home, physicians to fit the needs of optometry, dentistry, chiropractic care, physical therapy, podiatry, specialty services and family practice centers. The Central Community School System, which includes the communities of DeWitt, Grand Mound, Low Moor and Welton, is home of the Central Sabers. St. Joseph Catholic School, home of the Eagles, is a private school for children from preschool through eighth grade. DeWitt takes care of our community from the very young with two licensed childcare/preschool centers and many in-home childcare facilities, to our elderly with several elderly housing units, an assisted living facility and our nursing home, Westwing Place.
Quality of life is a strong point of DeWitt. Main Street is host to the German Hausbarn museum, community historical museum, financial institutions and many locally owned businesses providing everything from prescriptions to gift baskets to clothing and, of course, many specialty shops.

Several parks adorn our community including Lincoln Park, Paarmann Park and Westbrook Park, with an extensive walking/bike trail. The city hall, post office, community center, library, police station, fire department and a family-owned grocery store are all centrally located near Main Street.
