Ideally located on Hwy 59 and surrounded by some of the most productive farmland. Primghar is a great place to live, work and visit!


Our unique blend of heritage, combined with our friendliness and caring spirit, makes Primghar a great place to call home.


Agribusiness is the mainstay of our community.  The O’Brien County Courthouse and the Mercy Hospital and Clinics are two critical entities that help to bring diversity and employment opportunities to our town. These, along with our business owners both around the square and throughout the community, ensure your every need is covered.


Our schools are of the highest quality in educational and recreational opportunities. The South O'Brien Schools are comprised of students from Primghar, Paullina, Sutherland, Calumet and Gaza.


Our recreational activities provide year-round entertainment. These include the Primghar Play House, the Figure 8 Races and the Primghar Golf & Country Club. These, along with our camping and community events offer fun and entertainment for young and old.


Faith and family are a very important part of this little town.  With several churches, your spiritual needs are taken care of.


Primghar offers all the amenities of a large community with that home town feel.  Come and check us out!
