City & Culture
Little Falls is a city in Morrison County, Minnesota, United States, near the geographic center of the state. Established in 1848, Little Falls is one of the oldest cities in Minnesota. It is the county seat of Morrison County. The population was 8,343 at the 2010 census.Little Falls is the location of the boyhood home of Charles Lindbergh. Just across from the home is Charles A. Lindbergh State Park, named after Lindbergh's father, prominent Minnesota lawyer and U.S. Congressman Charles August Lindbergh.
The town was named after falls that were located on the Mississippi River, which travels through the town. Several attempts to build dams over the falls took place throughout the town's history, some of which powered saw mills in the nineteenth century. Today, the Little Falls Dam serves as a hydroelectric station that generates power for the surrounding area.
We believe that dining needn’t be expensive to be fine. Little Falls and its surrounding districts boast some of the best , Polish, Chinese, and German food in Minnesota, and all at affordable prices. Those looking for a more posh vibe will be happy to know that our neighborhood also offers restaurants with that good home cooked feel and taste, places like The Back and White, Cabin Fever, and The Royal Cafe, just to name a few.

Once a year Little Falls hosts the Little Falls Arts & Crafts Fair, the Arts and Craft Fair is an annual fair held the weekend after Labor Day.
