Living in Cottage Grove, MN

Cottage Grove’s first settlers moved west from New England and brought traditional Greek revival architecture with them. The town was nicknamed “New England of the West” during its early years. Most of the residents were grain and dairy farmers who took advantage of the area’s rich soil and easy access to Midwestern markets. Cottage Grove was founded in 1846 and quickly grew to house the shops and businesses required for a new community to thrive. However, the settlement remained a rural township for more than 100 years. In the mid-20th century, a land developer built ranch-style homes in town, which drastically changed the rural landscape. Today, Cottage Grove is the product of suburban sprawl. The city is one of Minnesota’s fastest growing communities as residents escape the fast-paced lifestyle of nearby Minneapolis and seek solace in Cottage Grove apartments.

Cottage Grove Attractions and Special Events

The Cottage Grove Strawberry Fest is one of the city’s favorite events. The four-day festival helps kick off the summer season and brings thousands of visitors to Cottage Grove to enjoy a carnival, car show, hot air balloon rides, a petting farm, strawberry pie eating competition and top chef contest, among other events. The Deadview Cemetery is also here and invites guests to experience one of the best outdoor Halloween attractions in Minnesota.
