The Unique Community Hiding In Minnesota That Is Sure To Enchant You

Minnesota is home to a lot of incredible neighborhoods in each of its major cities and beyond. Each has its own unique people and points of interest, and all are notable for being vibrant parts of the city to which they belong. But there is one neighborhood in particular that just might be the most unique community in all of Minnesota.

The Latsch Island boathouse community in Winona is a floating community that has been around for decades. Many of its residents have come and gone over the years, while others have stuck around for generations to brave the elements, the will of the river, and efforts to have the community removed. The neighborhood’s legal status is secure these days, allowing up to 100 houseboats in residence. Let’s take a look at why this place is so special.
