Fairmont, Minnesota is the “City of Lakes” in a state that boasts over 10,000 of bodies of water. With a population of 11,000, Fairmont is the county seat of Martin County, one of Minnesota’s largest corn producers.
The city of Fairmont stretches and curls around five regional lakes, making it one of Minnesota’s leading agricultural communities as well as a toe-hold for manufacturing and medical opportunities in the state. Why? Because people want to live, work, and play in a city that not only provides a wide variety of recreational pursuits, but also artistic and enrichment activities, easy access to Minneapolis, and a low cost of living.
With several public and private golf courses, an aquatic park, over 500 acres of parkland, and an active community calendar, Fairmont combines resort-style living with a small-town lifestyle. And now you know why the city is whispered to be “Southern Minnesota’s best kept secret.”
Well, maybe not anymore.
