Malmo, Minnesota

There are several Malmo’s in the world, only some of which are in Sweden. We found quite a few no-man places, a lot of barren landscapes randomly named after the Fatherland town of Malmo.

But we also found some living communities. Take for example Malmo, Minnesota. Home to 332 nice people.

Malmo came abouts in the 1880’s when settlers from Malmo, Sweden, moved over to live. They farmed and logged – and there was also a creamery. Oh, and a post office.

Malmo boats a camp site called Pete’s Retreat LINK – if you are thinking about going to Malmo this is the only place to go. Literally.

There is even a selection of lovely tourist gifts to bring back home…
