Welcome to the Town of Ethan's web site!  We are a small community just 10 miles south of Mitchell, SD that celebrated our 125th anniversary in 2008.  Our town has many activities to offer for people of all ages.  As you can see we have a beautiful park that is still in the progress of being improved.  Our school and businesses have many things to offer also.  We feel that this is a great community for friends and family to come together!  We invite you to browse around our website, view our school, businesses, and community clubs.  Please contact us if you have any questions. 


On March 24, 2015 the Davison County Commissioners acted by Resolution #032415-01 declaring a Fire Danger Emergency prohibiting burning in Davison County, until such time as the Resolution declaring the Fire Danger Emergency shall be rescinded or amended.

Any person in violation of this Resolution shall be subject to a maximum penalty of thirty (30) days in jail, a five hundred dollar ($400) fine, or both.

According to the Resolution, residents may still burn:
