MINNEAPOLIS, MN - Have you finished all the tours in the Twin Cities? Do you want to live in the past, or at least get the vibe of living in the past? Well, there is a place in Mankato just for you to live the history.

The Minnesota River Valley is a timeless place. You can witness the beauty of old homes and churches along the Minnesota MankatoValley's scenic byway.

The eastern end of the byway goes to Mankato. In Jessenland, a church built in 1870 is located on the hill above the town.

The next stop is Henderson, which has a historic district. More than a dozen buildings on both sides of Main Street have been built over the years.

Located in the heart of Le Sueur, it is home to the two major companies that started in the area, the Green Giant and the Mayo Clinic. Both of them are family companies, and they live in the same house. Back in the 1800s, the house was renovated to its original look. Some of its original furnishings were still on display.

The village of Ottawa has several buildings on the National Register. One of these is the Methodist Church, which was built during the time of the 1870s.

St. Peter is an excellent stop for lunch or shopping. There are a variety of shops and restaurants in the area on the National Register.

Located on the Minnesota byway, Mankato has plenty of historical landmarks. Some of these include the Union Depot, the Carnegie Art Center, and the Lincoln Park neighborhood.

The mansion was home to Joseph Hubbard, who founded the flour-milling company Hubbard Brothers. He lived in the home with his family until he died in 1926.
