Places - Faribault

Faribault, MN

Located south of the Twin Cities on Interstate 35, Faribault is a city of roughly 20,000 people. It was established in 1852 by Alexander Faribault, a fur trader and entrepeneur. Faribault has an astonishing number of buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Place (more than 40), and they have a beautiful downtown area where cars still park diagonally. And remember that “Tilt-A-Whirl” ride from the summer carnivals? It was built here by a company called Sellner Manufacturing.
