Fulda is located on Highway 59 just 15 minutes north of I-90 on the gently rolling prairie plains of Murray County in southwestern Minnesota. The prairie of this area of Minnesota provides a variety of high quality natural resources including productive soils, many lakes, small streams, a multitude of marshes, abundant wildlife and lots of clean air. Fulda encompasses the north shore of beautiful Seven Mile Lake, a 177 acre recreational lake. Fulda was established in 1881 as a railroad community. America was stretching out into the rich agricultural promise of the Great North American Prairie and immigrants from Europe were pouring into the United States.
Settled by German, Irish, and Scandinavian immigrants, Fulda is still predominantly an agricultural community even today, though many of Fulda inhabitants commute to manufacturing, retail and service industry jobs within a 40 mile radius. Fulda’s people inherited a strong work ethic from their ancestry. Our people believe in the hometown idea of working together, helping each other and getting involved in their community.
