Hello from Caledonia -- The "Wild Turkey Capital" of Minnesota.  

Come visit us and the whole family will enjoy the many things Caledonia has to offer.  Caledonia has a historic past and scenic views, and is a destination in itself with diverse activities, abundant lodging, fine dining and with its hospitality second to none, you will soon feel like family.

There is plenty to do all year round, with Beaver Creek State Park only a few miles west, the Mississippi River only a rock skip down the road to the east, fishing, hunting, cycling and exploring the scenic valleys surrounded by "the mountains of Minnesota".  Tired of the rat race?  Relax and enjoy our rural lifestyle.  A traffic jam here means there are five cars lined up at the light!  

Caledonia has much to offer for a weekend get-away or that week away from the office.  Come see what you have been missing; make plans to visit us soon; you will be glad that you did. To get to this very beautiful part of the world, look at the Minnesota Map in the far S.E. corner of the State. Two major highways come together here, State Hwy 76 which intersects with I-90, and State Hwy 44.  The Houston County Airport is located just south on Hwy 76 and the LaCrosse, Wisconsin airport, just 30 miles away, has you connected with the rest of the world.  This area also boasts the only National Scenic Byway that parallels I-90 so travelers can enjoy the scenic 88 mile stretch of State Highway 16 from La Cresent to Dexter without any large detour.

Hidden down in the corner of Minnesota you will travel down a scenic road to the little community of Freeburg. Here time has stood still and there is evidence of her springing back to life. From the oldest unmodified Catholic Church in the Winona Diocese (1886) to a one room school house. Historic Little Miami (1938) supper club type of restaurant fills it tables with dinners regularly from customers who live sixty or more miles away. The Freeburg locals are friendly people which you can sit around a bar in the middle of nowhere and have conversations with like we've known
you forever. The Freeburg area is loaded with wild turkey, deer, eagles, and Rainbow Trout in Crooked Creek stream.
