Olmsted County, located in the southeastern area of the great state of Minnesota, was established on February 20, 1855. Named in honor of David Olmsted, the first Mayor of Rochester, the county has an abundance of natural beauty, rich history, and notable landmarks.

The area's establishment and growth can be traced back to the mid-1800s, with Dr. George W. Mayo's arrival in 1863. Dr. Mayo, a medical practitioner, opened his small practice, which eventually grew into the renowned Mayo Clinic. The internationally-acclaimed medical facility is now the county's largest employer and a driving force behind Rochester's development as a city.

In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Olmsted County flourished with farming, quarrying, and manufacturing industries. The economic prosperity during this period led to the construction of numerous iconic buildings, such as the Chateau Theatre and the Plummer Building, both listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

A fun fact about Olmsted County is that the county's park system contains more than 550 acres of parkland, promoting outdoor recreation and exploration. Oxbow Park and Zollman Zoo, a popular attraction in the region, is home to more than 30 species of wild animals native to Minnesota. The park provides a glimpse of Olmsted County's natural beauty while offering educational and recreational opportunities for all ages.
