Most People Don’t Know These 13 Super Tiny Towns In Minnesota Exist

Many people love Minnesota because while the thriving Twin Cities add a large cultural center to the state, the real heart of Minnesota lies in the small towns. There are, in fact, only 3 cities in Minnesota with a population of over 100,000, and only 15 more over 50,000, while there are hundreds of towns with a population of 1,000 or less -over 700 according to the 2013 US Census. Here are some of those towns you may not have heard of, that are just as much a crucial part of Minnesota as anywhere in the Metro. Since we obviously can’t list all 700+, please tell us about the small towns you know in the comments!

Do you recognize some of these small towns? What is the smallest town you’ve been to in MN?
