With over 50,000 residents, DeSoto stands out among its neighbors. Not only is it the leading city in its area, but DeSoto is also one of the few American cities to receive the National Civic League’s All-America City Award. DeSoto earned this accolade through their citizens banding together to tackle the largest challenges they faced as a community. The results were enough to catch the eye of the National Civic League, and now DeSoto proudly proclaims themselves as the, “All-American City”.
