Our Region

About Our Region

West central Minnesota’s corner of the world has undulating prairies in every direction, miles of fertile farmland, some on flat land, some on rolling hills and nearly half of the lakes in the entire state. Our land is diverse with prairie grasslands, decidous and coniferous forests providing the scenic backdrop of townships, small communities, micropolitans and sizeable cities. We are a community of people who realize that the forces of change globally, nationally, regionally and local, provides us with exciting opportunities for the future.

From small-town life to an urban scene, West Central Minnesota offers it all, including great schools, safe communities, and affordable housing, all just steps away from the lakes and natural beauty you love. Click on the links below to learn more about each of our great 9 counties!
