The city of Delano is located about a half an hour west of the Twin Cities on US Highway 12. Despite being encroached upon by the ever-expanding metro area, Delano still retains a lot of its small-town charm and heritage. An old river town sitting on the banks of the Crow River, there are still a lot of beautiful older buildings here. The impressive onion dome on the steeple of St. Peters’ Catholic Church towers over the town. It can be seen from miles away and creates an unmistakable skyline.
