Welcome to Shell Rock, Iowa

Founded in 1855, Shell Rock, is home to bridges that link the town together, including one that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Lots are available in the community for new home construction. Existing affordable homes, available business property, a quality education system and services such as high speed Internet make Shell Rock an ideal place to raise a family or start a business.


City Hall and the Police Department have moved to their new location at 802 N. Public Road. The drop box for utility bills is still available at the Boyd Building and will be checked daily. We look forward to serving you in our new location.


Before doing any additions, fencing, or modifications to your property that affect the structure, you must apply for a zoning permit. Also, before you dig be sure to call Iowa One Call for locates of the utilities on your property. [ APPLICATION ]
