More about us...

Welcome SignNestled in the south central Ozarks Highland region, the City of Rolla is home to Missouri University of Science and Technology, Missouri’s premier technological research university, and boasts a history that predates the Civil War. The appeal of Rolla and the region to visitors, though, lies in its recreational opportunities. Outdoor attractions abound with numerous springs, forested hills and rivers. Our parks system boasts over 304 acres including over 10 miles of walking trails, outdoor water park and state of the art indoor fitness complex. All these factors lead to an incredible quality of life as noted by Rolla consistently ranked among the most livable and desirable communities in the country by a number of publications.

Located at the intersection of I-44 and State Highway 63, Rolla is centrally located within the state and less than 100 miles from St. Louis, Jefferson City, Columbia and Springfield. The beautiful scenery provides the backdrop but the City is blessed with an outstanding history and quality of life. The City was an important site during the Civil War, because the southwest branch of the Pacific Railroad ended here and the opening of Route 66 in Missouri was celebrated in Rolla. This is a community that values and promotes the arts, which explains the number of concerts, lectures, and exhibitions held annually. From the Blue Ribbon Schools to a regional medical center to a diverse economy, it's no wonder Rolla has been called one of the "101 Best Outdoor" towns or one of "America’s Dreamtown."
