Here Are The 15 Poorest Cities In Minnesota

Last week we rounded up Minnesota’s richest cities, but did you wonder who was on the opposite end of that list? Today we’re giving you the 15 poorest cities in MN compiled with help from ZipAtlas. We ranked these in order of average income per capita (and gave you the average household income as well). It’s round 2, so place your bets again and get ready, get set, go!

Many of these places are small towns on lakes where people keep expenses low, allowing for lower incomes. Which one of these surprised you the most? The least?
