About Alden, MN


On Scenic Morin Lake

Built around the scenic 21-acre Morin Lake at Highway 109 and I-90, the city of Alden, Minnesota in Freeborn County was platted as a railway village in 1869 by the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul Railroad. Now considered as part of the metro area surrounding the burgeoning county seat of Albert Lea, Alden has reported having a post office since 1866. Early German, Scandinavian and Irish settlers are recorded to have arrived in what are now Alden and Carlston Townships in 1858. That heritage is still reflected in the people who reside in this community that has a population approaching 700 and that lies in the 720 square miles of rolling land, beautiful lakes, and rich soil of Freeborn County.

Alden is a vibrant community with a strong local government, three churches, a public school with grades K through 12, a health clinic that is part of the greater Mayo Health Systems, a dental clinic, a full-service 9-hole golf course, a town newspaper, bank and fire department and other numerous businesses that enhance the close-knit community spirit shared by all the residents in this picturesque lakeside town.
