The city of De Soto has a distinct identity – a family-friendly and economically strong community with a business friendly atmosphere that offers great opportunities for both businesses, and residents alike.

The city of De Soto is located at the intersection of Interstate 80 and Highway 169, just 15 miles from West Des Moines at exit 110. The city of De Soto is a wonderful community for families both large and small with an easy commute to work and entertainment in the greater Des Moines area.

Established in 1868, De Soto has always taken great pride in our small town values with a moderate population of just over a thousand residents. De Soto continues to possess a strong character built upon a solid foundation by our Community Leaders and Staff, along with our Public WorksLibraryPolice and Fire Departments. 

Thank you, we look forward to your visit.
