TABLE OF CONTENTS


VISIT MARTIN COUNTY

ENJOY THE VIEW!

To visit Martin County is to discover a new world of

natural wonders, fascinating history and culture, and

unforgettable culinary experiences that linger long

after you’ve returned home. Or maybe your adventures

across this picturesque and memorable landscape

will entice you to consider relocating permanently to

this beautiful area of Minnesota. Whether you are here

for a few days, weeks, or even a lifetime, our plentiful

lakes, sweeping prairie land, historic landmarks, and

mouthwatering dining options will be sure to captivate.

Outdoor enthusiasts will not be disappointed with the

array of activities that await them, from hiking and

CROSS-COUNTRY SKIING

AT CEDAR CREEK PARK

biking, to ATV and snowmobile trails. This is where your

sense of adventure will know no bounds!

While you’re here, be sure to check the calendar for

one of our many popular festivals, where you can get

a true taste of life in Martin County. History buffs can

delve a little deeper into the local culture by visiting

various sites listed on the Minnesota National Register,

while learning about Indian uprisings, military conquests

and marveling at magnificent architecture – don’t forget

to make time for some antique browsing along the way.

Those looking to kick back and let time pass

them by, should head to one of the numerous lakes

scattered across the county for a relaxing day of fishing,

swimming, canoeing or boating. Camping facilities at

several of these lakes help to complete the perfect day

of tranquility. Known as the ‘City of Lakes’, Fairmont is

home to five stunning bodies of water – George Lake,

Lake Sisseton, Budd Lake, Hall Lake, and Amber lake –

four of which are interconnected and all offering fishing

and boating opportunities.

If a round of golf is more your style, we’ve got two 18-

hole courses in Fairmont, and a third nine-hole facility in

Sherburn. Or how about a round of disc golf? Fairmont’s

Cedar Creek Park has not one, but two 18-hole courses

for devotees of this increasingly popular pastime and a

third 18-hole course is now underway.

HERITAGE ACRES AGRICULTURAL INTERPRETIVE CENTER

TAKE A STEP BACK...

It was thanks to the rolling hills surrounding

our picturesque lake setting that Fairmont was

named. It was originally called Fair Mount. Since the

establishment of a fort here in 1826, Fairmont has been

steeped in an intriguing history.

For nearly 200 years, our community has weathered

Indian uprisings, Civil War unrest, 19th century

agricultural challenges, and the industrial development

of the early 1900s. But that rich tapestry of pioneering

settlers, battlefield conflicts, and innovative farming

methods, has seen Fairmont grow to become one of the

state’s leading rural communities.

Enjoy historical sites listed on the Minnesota National

Register, visit the ‘Lost Towns’ of Martin County, and

walk in the footsteps of Victorian era residents in our

historic downtown centers. Wherever you choose to

go, you’ll embark on a voyage of discovery spanning

centuries, cultures, and a bygone era.

FAIRMONT HISTORY TIMELINE

1826 Fort established as an army post and trade center.

1857 First permanent settlers, E. Banks Hall and William

H. Budd, arrive. Fairmont platted by the Des Moines

and Watonwan Land Company.

1858 First post office in Martin County dedicated

in Fairmont.

1862 Fort Fairmont established shortly after

Sioux Indian Uprising.

1873 Three year “Grasshopper Plague” hits area farms.

1878 Southern Minnesota Railroad completed in Fairmont.

1896 First switchboard and telephones installed.

1909 Fairmont Railway Motors established to make

small farm engines.

THE ‘LOST TOWNS’ OF

MARTIN COUNTY

Gone but not forgotten, the nine ‘Lost Towns’ are

recognized via historical markers throughout the county.

Thanks to the dedication of the Martin County

Historical Society, these former communities will be

remembered by future generations, and visitors can

trace these ghost towns with the organization’s tour

map.

They include Manyaska, established in 1899 and once

a prosperous shipping point for livestock and grain,

the town of De Soto, named for a Spanish explorer, and

Tenhassen, a former bustling settlement where only its

cemetery remains.

FIND SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE

When visitors come to Martin County they don’t

complain there is nothing to do. Instead, they lament the

you occupied and entertained from the moment you

arrive to the time that you reluctantly leave.

Plan on staying awhile? No problem. We have yearround

activities that make this the ideal destination

for tourists and residents alike. Visit one of our bars or

music venues for some fancy footwork on the dance

floor, live music, and a chance to sing your favorite

karaoke tune.

Sporty types can get in the middle of the action, or

just spectate, at numerous events including crosscountry

skiing, football, volleyball, soccer, hockey

and baseball. And on Friday evenings, from April to

September, you can enjoy the thrill of dirt track racing at

the Fairmont Raceway (www.FairmontRaceway.com).

Bowlers should head to the Bowlmor Lanes & Lounge

in Fairmont, which has been operating in the community

since the 1940s. Today, it’s a modern and popular

gathering place for families, and even includes a golf

simulator for those who miss the fairways during the

winter months (www.Bowlmor-Lanes.com).

Get out on the hiking and biking trails or the golf

course in the warmer seasons, or enjoy aquatic activities

www.visitfairmontmn.com

like fishing and boating – you can’t miss the chance

to visit our stunning lakes while you are here. Winter

SNOWMOBILING ON 140 MILES OF GROOMED TRAILS

SEASONAL RECREATION

PHOTO CREDIT: SHANNA LARSON (TOP), CHIP PEARSON (INSET)

ALL AROUND AMAZING

Wondering what’s the best time of year to visit Martin

County? The answer is simple. It’s all-year round. No

matter what season you choose to visit, there is always

something to see and do.

WINTER (DECEMBER – MARCH)

For around three months of the year Martin County

becomes a winter wonderland. The surrounding

landscape takes on an ethereal beauty that’s just

begging to be enjoyed. Swap your four-wheeled

vehicle for a snowmobile and head out onto 140 miles

of groomed trails that connect with Faribault County

to the east, and Watonwan County to the north. Don

some skis and enjoy the scenery via some cross-country

skiing, or how about a snowshoeing adventure? There

are groomed trails at Cedar Creek Park, as well as trails

at Bright Lake, Timberlane and Cedar Hanson Parks.

Fairmont has an indoor arena for ice-skating, or try your

hand at some ice fishing at one of our local lakes.

SPRING (APRIL – MAY)

As the winter snows begin to melt, it’s time to breath

in the fresh smells of spring. Blow away the cobwebs

during a leisurely ride or stroll along one of our many

bicycling and walking trails throughout Fairmont, or

pedal over to Bright Lake, Timberlane or Cedar Hanson

Parks. You will also find horseback trails at these

locations. Golfers can tee off at two challenging 18-hole

courses at Interlaken or Rose Lake Golf Clubs. And if

time is not on your side, then take to the fairways of Fox

Lake Golf Club for a nine-hole round

www.visitfairmontmn.com

SUMMER (JUNE – AUGUST)

Where better to enjoy the lazy days of summer than

on the shores and waters of one of Martin County’s

many lakes? Enjoy scenic views from a boat, canoe or

kayak, catch a fish or two, or up the energy factor with

a spot of water skiing. Water activities also beckon at

the Aquatic Park in Fairmont, along with area swimming

pools. Hiking, biking and golfing continue on from the

spring months, as well as the opportunity for a round of

disc golf. Fairmont has two, 18-hole disc golf courses –

players throw plastic discs into a series of metal baskets

– and a third underway at Cedar Creek Park

FALL (SEPTEMBER – NOVEMBER)

This is the perfect time to take in the magnificence

and beauty of Mother Nature’s changing colors. Bright

shades of green make way for red, yellow, and gold,

creating a spectacular backdrop from which to enjoy fall

activities. Pick up some sweet and juicy apples from one

of two local orchards, or grab some cider or delicious

homemade pies. (www.CenterCreekOrchard.com and

www.TimberLakeOrchard.com) Go for a scenic drive

around the lakes and into our surrounding countryside

and parks, or head out onto the water to enjoy the prewinter

rays of sunshine. This is also a popular season for

hunters, who travel to Martin County to take advantage

of the water fowl, white-tail deer and pheasants that

gather in the region. You can also get some target

practice in at the Fairmont Trap Club’s shooting range.

George

Lake

82 Acres, 11 Feet Deep

This shallow lake is considered a ‘gem’ by many because of its peaceful serenity. In 2014,

the Fairmont Lakes Foundation, Inc. (FLF) stocked this lake with 300 Bluegills, so you know

you will find an ample supply of fish along with 7 public fishing locations. Once the geese

leave the area, usually between November and January, aerators will be installed by the

city of Fairmont and the FLF. They are intended to keep open water on the ice to maintain

healthy oxygen levels for our marine life. Back in the day, this lake was originally called

‘George’s Lake’ for George Tanner, who owned abutting land.

Lake

Sisseton

139 Acres, 19 Feet Deep

Lake Sisseton’s shoreline of rock, gravel, sand and woody debris provide good habitat

for fish. And since it is a popular fishing lake, the DNR stock this lake with Walleye

fingerlings every other year. In 2014, the FLF stocked this lake with 300 Bluegills. You’ll

find aerators on this lake as well in the wintertime, so don’t get too close with your

skis, snowshoes or snowmobile and be sure to obey the thin ice markers. Local lore

says there still are remnants of Indian trails along the lake’s bank. This lake was named

for the Sisseton branch of the Dakota Indian tribe that once dominated this region now

known as...Martin County.

Budd

Lake

224 Acres, 23 Feet Deep

Budd Lake is the middle of the Fairmont Chain of

Lakes. You will see four solar powered aeration

devices that are actually aerators that circulate

the water from the surface down to a depth of

approximately 6’. This 24-hour circulation action

helps improve the oxygen levels in the water which

is not only good for the fish, but also helps to control

the amount of algae in the lake! This circulation also

promotes more consistent water quality as Budd

Lake is the City’s main source for its drinking water!

Knowing that, we think it’s imperative that we all be

mindful and use good stewardship practices to help

keep this lake (and all the lakes) as clean as possible!

This lake is named after our very first settler of the

city of Fairmont....William H. Budd.

Hall

Lake

Hall Lake is the largest and deepest of the chain

of lakes. It is a great lake not only for waterskiing,

but also for sailboats, jet skis, wind surfing, fishing,

snowmobiling, pond hockey, etc. While boating on

the west side, pay attention to the buoys as the

Dutch Creek outlet has created some shallow waters

there. Gomsrud Park, between Hall and Budd Lakes,

has the largest parking area and boat launch in the

city. In 2014 the DNR stocked Hall Lake with Walleye

fingerlings. This lake is named after one of our early

settlers, E. Banks Hall, who in 1856 owned land on the

eastern shore.

MARTIN COUNTY FAIR

ENJOYING THE RIDE AT THE MARTIN COUNTY FAIR

MINNESOTA’S OTHER BIG FAIR

The 153rd Martin County Fair will be held August

13-19th. The Martin County Fair is a wonderful place for

the whole family to enjoy all of the events and activities

that your family has grown to love about the fair over

the years. As Minnesota’s “Other Big Fair,” the Martin

County Fair features the largest number of attractions,

events and activities of any other fair in rural southern

Minnesota including: quality musical entertainment

GAMES, PRIZES AND RIDES

OF ALL SIZES

featuring local and big name talent, a variety of games,

rides and other amusements in the Midway by Family

Fun Shows; local and regional livestock shows; 4-H,

FFA and Open Class Exhibits; business booths featuring

specials, sales and giveaways; Amateur Talent Contests

for both adults and children; Auto Racing at Fairmont

Raceway adjoining the Fairgrounds; great meals and

fair food from local organizations and vendors; farm

equipment display and tractor driving contest; children’s

shows; donkeys and mules; Pork Cook-Off; and much

more!

Thursday evening you will want to crimp your hair

and put on your 80’s best and come rock with Hairball.

Hairball is a Rock and Roll experience you won’t soon

forget. Most bands put on a concert - Hairball puts

on an event! The lights, sound, smoke, fire, bombs,

and screaming hordes of avid fans...to merely call it

a concert would be like calling Mount Rushmore a

roadside attraction! Hairball is more than just a band -

and certainly more than a tribute band!

Do You Have

“Feeling Crappy Syndrome”?

Millions of Americans are walking around every day

with a case of “Feeling Crappy Syndrome”. These

people have symptoms such as fatigue, body aches

excess weight they can’t lose.

Many of those suffering from “Feeling Crappy

side effects and don’t fix the

problem.

Now there is hope! Dr. Hartman

from “Feeling Crappy

to Feeling Happy” with

natural functional medicine and

he wants to help you!

WORKING IN MARTIN COUNTY

BUSINESS & INDUSTRY

The economic drivers of Fairmont and Martin County

are agriculture and industrial businesses.

Fairmont is one of the state’s leading agricultural

communities, but also has a significant manufacturing

base, as well as a healthy combination of national

and homegrown companies. Our county is the largest

producer in Minnesota for both hogs and corn, and it is

in the state’s top 10 for soybeans and cattle.

Thanks to our business-friendly climate and

experienced workforce, a number of agriculturalbased

businesses have chosen to locate here. They

include Avery Weigh-Tronix, CHS, Green Plains

Renewable Energy, Advanced Drainage Systems, Kahler

Automation, Fairmont Vet Clinic, and Devenish Nutrition.

There are more than 880 businesses operating in

the city, including two Fortune 500 companies, 3M

and CHS. The population of Fairmont is approximately

10,500, but our businesses serve a much wider base

with well over 20,000 residents in Martin County alone.

MARTIN COUNTY FEATURES A DIVERSE AGRICULTURAL INDUSTRY

AGRICULTURE

AN INDUSTRY OF

GROWTH

As the number two-ranked region in the state for

agricultural production, farming plays a huge role in

Martin County – it makes up a substantial percentage of

local employment.

Not only is crop production significant – with corn,

soybeans, alfalfa hay, sweet corn, and green peas

topping the list – but we also raise approximately two

million market pigs every year.
