While not a boom town, St. Francis has seen its share of growth over the years. An even mix of urban style residential lots and large acreage hobby farms has provided the city with a number of quality housing developments.
The St. Francis area has a variety of recreational opportunities. The Rum River provides an exceptional setting for the canoeing and fishing enthusiasts. Located within the heart of St. Francis, the Rum River North Park provides easy access to the river.
