Chatfield is one of those places that everyone needs to experience from time to time. Oh sure, there are supermarkets and a few convenience stores in town, like everywhere else, but this place just reeks of history. The downtown is filled with turn-of-the-century buildings and the pace of life is slow.

You get a true taste of Chatfield life if you happen through town on a Thursday during the summer. You will find pie and ice cream available in the park so that you will truly enjoy the band concert slated for that evening. While it is usually the Chatfield Brass Band on the bill, it just might be the U.S. Navy Band or a Swedish Band coming through town on a national tour.

Maybe it is fishing, golf, canoeing or hunting which is your bag. Some of the best trout streams in Minnesota are right here and the greens on the local golf course are excellent. The white-tail deer herd is strong and the wild turkey population is a delight for all. and don't forget the bass in the fall.
