Florence, the Grand Lady of the Buffalo Ridge…

Reputedly named after a railroader’s daughter, Florence has been around as long as the railroad that came through in the 1880s. While one of Minnesota’s smaller towns with an even smaller population, Florence punches above her weight- We’re currently rebuilding our water system and will be one of the first cities in Minnesota to completely eliminate lead pipe in both water mains and home service lines. We have paved streets, high speed internet access, a city park, and more- all financed with tax rates that haven’t risen in memory and prudent reserves to survive financial rainy days.
