Located in America's heartland, Minneapolis is a rural community in the farmland of North Central Kansas. Two intersecting Interstate highways make travel to the area easy. Highway 81 is our connecting link to our international neighbors to the north and south and passes within a mile of the city.

Historically, farming and agricultural related businesses have been the mainstay of this community. Farming continues to be the backbone of today's economy with 250 thousand acres of cultivated land surrounding Minneapolis, the county seat of Ottawa County.

Numerous locally owned businesses provide consumer goods and services for the families within the community. Locally manufactured items are shipped to a variety of locations.

Local medical services are unsurpassed by any other community of our size in Kansas and include medical doctors, chiropractor, dentists and optometrists. The medical clinic and multi-service health center form the hub of the community's medical service. A skilled nursing home and a long term care unit provide additional care for those in need. The Wellness Center, a community health club, offers a lap pool, exercise equipment, and programs to achieve and maintain physical fitness for a healthy lifestyle.

Recreational opportunities include a nine hole golf course, tennis courts, swimming pool, ball diamonds, and outdoor basketball and volleyball courts. Several lakes, including Ottawa County's famous fishing lake, are within a few minutes drive. The city's recreation commission provides a variety of athletic opportunities for youth and adults. The John Henry Theater Company sponsors activities ranging from theater with local performers to traveling art shows.

Minneapolis, an Indian-Greek name translating to "City of Waters" is a welcoming oasis on the Kansas plains. This city of tree lined streets and stately Victorian homes welcomes everyone. In this community neighbors know neighbors, families have an enviable quality of life and those who have retired return to their roots.

The people of Minneapolis have pride in themselves, their city and its future. Minneapolis offers the best of the heritage from the past, a part in today, and a vision of tomorrow.

Rock City
No other place in the world has so many of these types of rocks, especially of such giant size. Some are as big as houses! Geologists are in general agreement that these concretions were formed millions of years ago of Dakota Sandstone, which was deposited when areas of Kansas were covered by an inland sea.
