Le Sueur County is located in both rich agricultural land and a diverse lake country, one of southern Minnesota's true gems. Located about an hour south of the Twin Cities, it is now considered part of that metropolitan statistical area. But with its rolling hills, prime farmland and over 100 lakes, there's more of a country, small-town atmosphere.
Le Sueur County is the 38th largest of Minnesota's 87 counties, with a population of 28,674, according to 2020 census estimates. The county's 10 cities have distinct personalities and feature a number of celebrations, festivals and events throughout the year.
