About Jordan, MN

Rich in history and culture

Established along the wooded bluffs and rolling hills of Minnesota’s most rapidly growing county (Scott County), the community of Jordan enjoys a small-town ambiance while being only minutes from the exciting Twin Cities metropolitan area. Already by the late 1850s, Jordan had a hotel, churches, a school, tavern, post office, two mills and a number of fine new homes. It is said that the town was named Jordan City after the biblical “River Jordan.” In 1872, Jordan City and a neighboring settlement called Brentwood were incorporated to form the present-day Jordan.

In Jordan’s historic downtown, you’ll find at least five antique shops and three family restaurants all within a city block. Fifteen of the buildings in this downtown area on Water Street and South Broadway are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Each year in June, Jordan area businesses promote the community with a celebration called the Annual Jordan Art Festival at which there are local and regional artists sharing their work, arts demonstrations, entertainment, a wine tasting, quilt show, food vendors and much more. Jordan has a full range of urban land use services and is the cultural and economic center of the immediate region.
