Located in the midsection of SE Minnesota’s agricultural heartland, Spring Valley indulges visitors of all types, whether stopping for supplies or seeking a weekend away from home. Touch centuries of history starting with a tour of Mystery cave and the 1800’s inspired village of Forestville. Continue with a visit to the 1876 Methodist Church Museum, a Laura Ingall’s Wilder site and one of nine Spring Valley sites listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Enjoy small town charm with all its amenities, including blue ribbon trout streams, several parks, live community theatre, paved bike trails and our own Good Earth Village.
Spring Valley hosts the Almanzo gravel road races in May (Wilderfest), featuring cyclists from all over the country riding 100, 162 and 380 mile routes through the beautiful rolling farmland of southeastern Minnesota. Spring Valley played an essential role in developing their land into Minnesota’s most important industry. We celebrate their efforts during Ag days in August.
