A Short Highlight from our Communities:
Ortonville is our largest community and is located on the shores of Big Stone Lake. And has many events throughout the year, the Big Stone Lake Area Chamber’s annual Cornfest event is three days of fun! Then heading north to Graceville (our next largest community), you’ll find the Pizza worth driving miles for! But they are also very well known for their St. Patricks Day Parade and celebration. And back to the middle of the County, you’ll find Clinton, a friendly community with playgrounds and a historic railroad depot. Clinton also hosts the annual Big Stone County Fair. Beardsley has an annual picnic in the park that brings you back to the best of yesteryear. Families gather – the kids play in the playground while the adults visit and enjoy the day. Odessa hosts a fun 4th of July parade and an afternoon of outdoor games, Correll, Johnson, and Barry! – #LivingRuralandLovingIt
Some Highlights from the County
Beautiful open spaces with lakes, grasslands, and wooded areas along with great farmlands. You will find that you can live in any of our open spaces and have a wired line Broadband. So, work from your home and enjoy these views!
You’ll find two Medical Centers (hospitals, clinics, and senior housing). Also, you will find great public safety throughout the County by the Big Stone County Sheriff’s department and the Ortonville Police Department. And two great school districts within our smaller populated county. The amenities you’d find in larger areas with the benefit of a less populated rural setting. Sounds perfect, doesn’t it?
