About Zumbrota

Zumbrota is located in Goodhue County, Minnesota, United States, along the North Fork of the Zumbro River.
Zumbrota was claimed as a town in 1856 by Joseph Bailey and D.B. Goddard. The name Zumbrota appears to have resulted from a corruption of the French name for the local river, Rivière des Embarras (Obstruction River) coupled with the Dakota toŋ (village).

Zumbrota is home to the Zumbrota Covered Bridge, the last remaining covered timber truss bridge in the State of Minnesota. The bridge is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The Zumbrota Public Library was the first tax supported library in Minnesota.

The estimated population as of 2022 is 4,036; with an estimated household of 1,615, according to the MN State Demographers Office.
We are proud to be the "Only Zumbrota in the world."
