Redfield, South Dakota Criminal Record Search
Redfield is a city in Spink County, South Dakota, United States. The population was 2,897 at the 2000 census. It is also known as the Pheasant capital of the world. It is the county seat of Spink
The first settlers arrived in the Redfield area in 1878, and a post office was established two years later under the name "Stennett Junction." The "Redfield" name was adopted in 1881. The town became the seat of Spink County in 1886, following a six year legal and political battle among several Spink County towns. Redfield rapidly became a major town in the region, due in part to its status as a railroad center -- the town was a crossroads of two lines of the Chicago and North Western Railway, and was also served by the Milwaukee Road Railroad.
Redfield College was established in the town in 1887, and operated until 1932. In 1902 the "Northern Hospital for the Insane," a state institution, opened on a campus just north of town. That facility remains in operation today as the South Dakota Developmental Center.
