Been through there. Seems like a nice community along the river. Correctional facility and Shoe maker along with agriculture are main economic drivers.

-----correctional facility----

For juveniles.

Surprised it is still there.
Red Wing had the one for males.
Sauk Centre had the one for females. Sauk Centre has been closed for about 25 years.

Did they move the girls' correctional facility to Red Wing also ?
