About Worthington, MN

You’ll Come to Love Us

Located on State Highways 59-60 and I-90 in southwestern Minnesota, Worthington rests at a high point between the Missouri and Mississippi basins. The first settlers to Worthington were attracted by the prospect of bountiful harvests from the fertile prairie and the beautiful lake Okabena. It was the railroad that was actually responsible for the founding of the city, though. Worthington was originally called Okabena Station by the Chicago Northwestern railroad which ran from Mpls-St. Paul southwest to Omaha. Okabena Station was a convenient location to get water to replenish the steam engines because of the lake’s close proximity to the tracks. Among the first settlers were those brought here by the National Colony Company of Toledo, Ohio. This colony believed in abstinence from alcohol and wanted a settlement comprised of other families who shared their strict moral standards. Today, Worthington attracts visitors from around the world for its annual Windsurfing Regata that takes place in conjunction with the Unvarnished Music Festival. Travelers also may view the historic Dayton House, the original home of Dayton’s Department Store founder.
