Southeast Minnesota Town is the Only One of its Kind in the World
All towns have something unique about them. It could be an attraction, the history, or a restaurant everyone loves. But this town in southeast Minnesota is unique in a way that surprised me a little bit.
I was doing some Googling to see which states shared a name with Rochester and our surrounding towns. All of them that I Googled appeared in multiple states.
For example, there are 17 Rochesters across the country:

I also found a Byron, California and a St. Charles, Illinois. But one of our nearby towns didn't share a name with any other town in the country or even in the world from what I could find!
Southeast Minnesota Town Unique to Minnesota
That town is Zumbrota. Yeah, Zumbrota is a unique name but I feel like I always hear about at least one other place in the world that shares a name with a town in our neck of the woods. But it turns out that Zumbrota is unique to us here in southeast Minnesota.
Like I said earlier, every town has something unique about them and there's just something about small towns that makes me enjoy visiting them. I wouldn't be able to live in a town with a small population, that's not for me, but I like visiting. And we have plenty of small towns to visit in southeast Minnesota.
