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, nursing home with assisted living facilities, many Mennonite greenhouses and shops as well as numerous other local businesses.

After much deliberation and with great regret we have made the difficult decision to cancel Old Roundhouse Trail Days for 2020 (hereafter to be named Elma Trail Days). With the Covid-19 virus still present, we feel that the uncertainty of public safety to gather in large crowds again by July is a risk we are unwilling to take. We are working to offer a smaller scale event (or two!) of some sort yet this summer or early fall, so please watch for future news on this.
We all look forward to Elma Trail Days returning July 9-10-11 in 2021; please mark it on your calendars!
