Welcome to Royal City

Back to all Communities

Welcome to Royal City

Royal City was founded in 1956. The townsite was previously named Royal Flats, and the entire area Royal Slope, thus the name Royal City.

Today, this small farming community is most known for producing a wide variety of crops, thanks to a long growing season. Apples, cherries, peaches, timothy and alfalfa hay, melons, potatoes, onions, wine grapes, pears, mint and corn are grown in this area. The Royal slope area is a popular place for birders, hunters, and golfers as well.
