We are glad you are looking at homes in Montevideo or anywhere in south west Minnesota! We believe it is a slice of Heaven you won't find just anywhere. With 12 parks that cover more than 115 acres, Montevideo has earned a nickname "The City of Parks". The Chippewa County Historical Society is very active and maintains a number of historical sites for you to visit this summer to keep the kiddos learning while having fun. Be sure to visit our Local Resources page for links to help you get there. The picture is of the barn at the historic Swensson Farm. A restoration project is currently under way to keep that treasure with us for generations to come.
