About Minnesota

Minnesota

One of Minnesota’s nicknames is “Land of 10,000 Lakes”, meant to indicate the sheer wealth of lakes, measuring in size from large to very small. But there are another 1,000 lakes on top of that number.

The majority of the State’s residents collect themselves close to one of the larger cities. Minneapolis and St. Paul, the Twin Cities, are surprisingly sophisticated and cosmopolitan, particularly among their arts and culture sectors. This propensity for the population to huddle close together may be why Minnesota is proud to be one of the most successful states when it comes to having a literate population.

Geologically, the layers of rock that lie beneath the surface of Minnesota are ancient: limestone, basalt, gneiss, and granite. The southeastern corner of Minnesota may be ripe for the development of sink-holes. In fact, the small town of Fountain, Minnesota is nicknamed “Sinkhole Capital of the World” for its large number of sinkholes. Groves of trees out in the middle of fields look to be standing up to the middle of their trunks in deep, circular depressions. Geologists explain that sinkholes occur when the underground rock strata, typically limestone that has been formed into cave-like honeycombs, crumbles under the weight of the earth. Some sinkholes are small and others are very large.

Large retail giants that got their start in Minnesota: Target, Best Buy, and 3M. Target, an upscale department store, continues to cut into deeper markets in all kinds of communities. Part tourist spectacle and part mall, the Twin Cities Mall of America still holds the award for world’s largest mall. It has a small amusement park inside it, complete with roller coaster.

National Public Radio show, A Prairie Home Companion, comes live each week from its home venue, The Fitzgerald Theater in St. Paul. This show has garnered a cult following unusual for radio. Populated by a predominantly Nordic ancestry, a large number of Minnesotans eat lutefisk, a whitefish preserved in lye. From October to November each year small towns around the state sponsor Lutefisk dinners. Locals may gorge themselves at community style sit-down dinners where featured Norwegian delicacies include lutefisk and lefse, a thin tortilla-like sweet bread that is often spread with butter and brown sugar

Imagine your dream home here!

Two Harbors, Lake County, Minnesota


Your dream home would love me!! A note from me, the land: I have been surveyed and enjoy the different views of Lake Superior everyday. Some days the waves are so big I feel like they are going to come up and touch me, but I am just high enough that I am safe! I have the ability to be connected to the shared sewer and the neighbors drilled well so that will save my new homeowner a lot of costs! The great people from the HOA plow so you can access me year round. We all share the land in this great HOA and there is a pretty awesome ladder that cranks up and down (so the waves don't destroy it) and all the people get to use it to access the beach and have a bonfire by the water in the moonlight or explore in the caves down below me! I also have lots of wildlife friends that would welcome you to the neighborhood. Excited to meet you! Your friend the Land
