For over 75 years
Since 1947, the Watertown Development Company (WDC) has been leading the way in creating one of the state’s most vibrant, secure, and growing economies. Founded by a group of far-sighted business leaders, the WDC is organized as a private non-profit economic development corporation for the purpose of establishing, funding and directing programs designed to promote and increase the commercial, financial and economic vitality of the City of Watertown and its citizens. We are recognized by the International Economic Development Council (IEDC) as the only Accredited Economic Development Organization (AEDO) in South Dakota. The organization is responsible for the creation of jobs and overall economic opportunity and owns and operates buildings, lands, and development areas for the economic benefit of Watertown.
