Royalton Demographics

Royalton, a town befitting its name, began in the late 1870's, although the first settlers began to arrive in the area in the 1850's. The early immigrants were mostly farmers, loggers and traders of Scottish descent, from Canada. The Platte River, which runs through Royalton, was a thoroughfare for logs harvested in the eastern part of Morrison County. A sawmill, as well as a flour mill, took advantage of the Platte River location. Royalton also could attribute much of its growth to its location along the Northern Pacific Railroad.

Royalton became a thriving city of numerous businesses. Farm implement dealers, blacksmiths, a veterinary clinic, a harness maker, a hardware store and grain elevators were just a few of those catering to the growing agricultural community. Clothing and dry goods stores, jewelers, shoe stores and general stores provided every day goods. The community also had its own newspaper, The Banner. Royalton's business district, located along Highway 10, has made it a convenient stop for travelers. It is still a bustling vibrant community with opportunity for both agriculture and industry.

In 1990, when Newman's Manufacturing decided to locate in Royalton and was looking for a site, the City Council "stepped up to the plate" and donated the old ball field for the company's new location. Today the company has 60 employees in their new facility along Highway 10.
