Lanesboro, sometimes called the "magical hamlet," is a thriving southeastern minnesota community that has become a destination for hundreds of thousands of visitors. It's an old town by midwestern standards, settled in 1856. But its redo as a tourist draw dates only to the 1970s and owes much to the wisdom of converting an abandoned rail line into a bicycle trail.
The town is nestled into the root river valley and surrounded by idyllic rolling countryside and rocky bluffs. It had been a busy milling community in the 1870s, when most of the downtown commercial district that remains today was built. A century later, most of the historic buildings were in disrepair and an old theater stood dark. The milwaukee road, which had closed its line through town, sold its 1870 depot. a citizens group used the depot's reconstruction as a catalyst for cultural and commercial revitalization. Members formed a task force, knocked on doors, held town meetings. City government, local nonprofit organizations, and private individuals adopted a collaborative plan focusing on the region's natural beauty, the arts and historic preservation.
Around the same time, the minnesota department of natural resources (dnr) obtained the old railroad right-of-way with plans to convert it to a recreational trail: a 60-mile paved route which would meander along the root river through picturesque limestone bluffs and the small towns—including lanesboro.
