The amenities of Grant County may surprise you!

Surprising? We think so.

Take the county seat of Elbow Lake. There's always something to do in this thriving little town. Take a look at the past - the museum, library or historic courthouse - or see what the future holds with the new state-of-the-art hospital. Venture out a bit and you'll come to the amazing Tipsinah Mounds Golf Course, a real hidden gem. And can you say "Flekkefest?"

The theatre program in Barrett could be the envy of any small midwest town! The Prairie Wind Players and affiliates not only have a dedicated performance space in town, but they take their teaching talents on the road. The town sits on the shores of Barrett Lake.

Ashby is growing with one of the most unique breweries you'll find with a major bike path, and tiny Hoffman continues to bring unique small businesses into town.

Several lakes dot the countryside surrounded by lush cropland, nature preserves and bike trails. And if you are looking for education excellence, look no further than the high schools in the county.
