The Gateway to the Prairie
Canby, Minnesota is the westernmost city in Yellow Medicine County and sits in the center of a broad, flat valley from which the Coteau des Prairies—a flatiron-shaped plateau—in South Dakota can be seen. Located at the junction of U.S. Highway 75 (The King of Trails) and State Highway 68, Canby has an excellent K-12 school system and has long been celebrated for its high school wrestling program. The school proudly displays trophies marking wins at the Minnesota State Team Championships eight times since 1976! A private college and a technical college support ongoing educational opportunities.
Canby’s quality healthcare system includes a hospital, nursing home, assisted-living facilities, and wellness center. The town is proud of its inviting churches and abundance of recreational and leisure activities that include hunting, fishing, golf, shooting, a public swimming pool, bowling, and camping. Canby still utilizes its historic movie theater and residents will boast to any visitor, “We also have fresh air, clean water, a low crime rate and friendly people!”
