A Great Place to Visit... A Better Place to Live


The little town that could... The community of Elma is a community of re-birth and endless growth.   Through many catastrophes in its early days, the citizens of Elma, with their spirit of hometown pride, persevered and rebuilt the community at every turn. This hometown spirit and  constant strive to make Elma the "best little bedroom community around" is still alive today .  It is evident among the families who reside here, as well as in the businesses, organizations, and Mennonite cultures that dot our landscape. 


The people of Elma invite you visit this website to learn more about our affordable housing, excellent Pre-school and early childhood center, recreational trail, community wellness center, museums, golf course, bowling alley, nursing home with assisted living facilities, many Mennonite greenhouses and shops as well as numerous other local businesses.
