About Lamberton, MN

A Learning Community

Lamberton, Minnesota is located on the Laura Ingalls Wilder Historic Highway (#14) in Redwood County. Like so many other small towns in the Midwest, Lamberton’s rich history reaches back to the days of the early homesteaders who arrived with the high hopes of farming the unbroken prairie soil. Under the Homestead Act of 1862, any head of household at least 21 years old could file for a claim on 160 acres in the public domain—land not already designated for a special purpose. Land could be acquired for $1.25 an acre by residing on it for six months. Normally, the price of land at this time averaged about $5.00 per acre.

When Lamberton was platted, it is said that the width of the streets were measured by how much room it took two teams of oxen pulling covered wagons to turn around. The early pioneers favored oxen to do the heavy work of turning the prairie sod. Although slower than teams of horses, oxen were stronger, ate less, and better survived the bitter winters.

Today, Lamberton is a thriving city with an excellent public school system, a new library, 63-bed nursing home with attached apartments, a University of Minnesota agricultural research center, a medical clinic affiliated with the Mayo Health System and a burgeoning business district. Visitors are especially welcomed to attend the annual Hot Iron Days Festival in September. This two-day event brings to life the traditional art of transforming molten iron into sculptures, tools and automotive parts.
