Lanesboro, MN

Nestled in a deep valley of the Root River (South Branch) is the unique city of Lanesboro. This quaint townsite of less than one thousand residents, located in the state hardwood forest reminds one of the many hillside villages in Norway. Norwegian immigrant influence is still felt today with food and conversation, although other nationalities, Irish and German, give it a cosmopolitan flavor. Where else can you eat a brat in a lefse or a serving of Romegrot with a glass of beer?

Strolling down the quiet streets of Lanesboro is like taking a step back in time. The downtown area is listed on the National Register of Historic Places...and for good reason! The two and three story frame, brick and stone buildings have changed very little since they were first built by immigrants who settled here a century and a half ago. The businesses afford the community with all basic services, but starting mid-week through Sunday the city is invaded by visitors looking for that different experience, that place for relaxation, invigorating fresh air, breathtaking scenic beauty and mind stimulation.

Come and explore the many gift and antique shops. Sample the locally made delicacies downtown and various fruit wines produced right here at the local winery. During summer you'll find a fresh vegetable vendor or two on the corner. Wednesdays and Fridays the Lanesboro Livestock Commission conducts auctions. Farmers from the tri-state area bring in their livestock for these auctions and other special auctions. Saturdays are good days to catch an estate household auction. Church and social group dinners and bake sales are an added treat from time to time.

Bed and Breakfasts in and near Lanesboro and modern cabins in the city provide rooms for the overnight traveler, the weekend explorer or the family vacation.

The community provides a myriad of recreationalofferings. The Root River, which winds right through the middle of town, is excellent for canoeing, tubing and fishing.

The State DNR Fish Hatchery, located at Lanesboro, produces more trout per year than any other state hatchery. Weekday and special tours are available. Trout fishermen delight in the knowledge that nearly all the trout raised at the Lanesboro Hatchery are stocked in local streams.[Read the Rest]
