Little Falls, Minnesota is located in Morrison County, approximately 100 miles northwest of Minneapolis/St. Paul, in central Minnesota, at the junctions of Highways 10, 27, and 371. An estimated 8,500 people live in Little Falls.

Established in 1848 on the banks of the Mighty Mississippi River, Little Falls is one of the oldest cities in the State of Minnesota. Over one hundred and fifty years ago, a group of entrepreneurs came across a site, along the Mississippi River, a spot Nature long since fitted for the site of a great city. It was the little falls in the Mississippi that attracted the attention of entrepreneurs, as it had the traders and explorers before them. These entrepreneurs and all that followed did their part and made it possible for Little Falls to become a great city! It is that same entrepreneurial spirit that is still a vital part of our progress and future. Today, Little Falls is still attracting businesses, travelers, and families that are looking for a place to call home. It's a quiet place, a place for people who desire a safe haven to plant their roots. It is a place that provides arts, entertainment and shopping, as well as a convenient transportation system, ample educational opportunities, quality health care, clean air and water, a committed workforce, gainful employment, safe and attractive neighborhoods, and opportunities to become involved in a community where you can make a difference.

Along with all of the wonderful attributes our city offers its citizens, there are many varied historical sites and attractions, as well as scenic and recreational opportunities for nature and sport buffs. Little Falls has something for everyone. Whether it be the Charles A. Lindbergh boyhood home and State Park, Pine Grove Zoo, Minnesota Fishing Museum, Minnesota Military Museum, Paul Larson Memorial Museum, Charles A. Weyerhaeuser Museum, St. Francis Convent, Camp Ripley Environmental Education Center, Crane Meadows National Wildlife Refuge, Linden Hill Conference & Retreat Center or the downtown National Historic District, it is a welcoming place and we invite you to join us here as did those before you. You will find that Little Falls is a great place to spend a day, a weekend or a lifetime.

Cathy VanRisseghem, Mayor of Little Falls
