I've always enjoyed learning about ghost towns, and there are many of them around Minnesota. Quite a few of those ghost towns are actually right here in southern Minnesota. I was able to find 9 ghost towns in the area that are all within 100 miles of Rochester, Minnesota. Most of them are within an hour, so an easy trip if you wanted to check any of these out.

All but three of the ghost towns on this list are along the Minnesota-Wisconsin border, which makes sense because that's where the Mississippi River runs. The Mississippi would have been incredibly useful for early settlers. Let's check out these strange ghost towns near Rochester. We'll also talk about some haunted hotels all within an hour of Rochester!
