Geography:

Zumbro Falls is a city in Wabasha County, Minnesota, United States, along the Zumbro River. The population was 177 at the 2000 census. The grist-mill dam built on Zumbro river in 1866 created the falls for which the town is named. The river is the cause of numerous floods which swept away the dam except for a few remaining traces of it.

U.S. Highway 63 and Minnesota Highway 60 are two of the main routes in the community. According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 0.5 square miles (1.2 km˛), of which, 0.5 square miles (1.2 km˛) of it is land and 0.04 square miles (0.1 km˛) of it (4.17%) is water. The elevation is 843 ft (257 m) above sea level.

History:  

The Zumbro River, first explored by Major Stephan Long in 1817, was named the “Riviers des Embarrass” or River of Difficulties. A point on this river was used as a ford for the Territorial Road going from Lake City to Rochester. In 1855 Zumbro Falls, not having a name at that time, was first settled by the Tibbetts brothers. They built their homes on each side of the river for the purpose of running a ferry across the river where the ford had been. They ran their ferry for three years, at which time it was sold. After this, the town expanded on the south side of the river. In 1866, Benjamin Clark moved to town and built a gristmill and dam above the rapids. The dam created a small falls and the town received the name Zumbro Falls. The town grew enough that the Midland Railroad ran tracks through the town in 1877 and a depot was built. By 1896 some of the village residents were demanding to become an organized town. The county board granted the incorporation of Zumbro Falls on February 28, 1898. Since that time many changes have occurred. The community now observes an annual celebration in May. This celebration is known as Ripplin’ River Daze. During the 3rd annual celebration on May 16, 1998 the town celebrated its 100th year celebration. At that time a book titled The Zumbro Falls, Minnesota memoirs 100 years plus…then and now was created. The book contains pictures and the history of the businesses and buildings that make up our village. Copies of the book are still available and you can obtain one by contacting the Ripplin’ River Daze committee.

ZUMBRO FALLS is a city at the falls of the Zumbro River in section 31 of Gillford. It was incorporated as a village on February 8, 1898; the post office has been established and reestablished three times since 1856. The townsite was platted by Uriah S. Whaley, who later served as one of the postmasters in his cabin. The Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul Railroad built a narrow gauge railroad in 1877, changing later to standard track.

Zumbro Falls, MN 55991

The steep bluffs, loess-covered uplands, narrow river valleys and broad floodplains of Zumbro Falls SNA straddle the Zumbro River. At one point, Wall Rock, a dry cliff community, towers 200 foot above the east side of the river bed. Frequent dolomite outcrops and low, moist cliffs support mosses, liverworts, and ferns. Small patches of Canadian yew, uncommon in this area, indicate cool ground water seepages. Along the river terraces, Indian paintbrush and smooth rock cress, both protected species, grow on gravel prairies. North and east-facing slopes are home to mesic old-growth oak forest, while oak forest, oak woodland, and brushland cover dryer slopes. Spring brings spectacular displays of bluebells under the basswood stands along the river. Wild ginger, trilliums, and hepatica bloom in the woodlands, and jeweled shooting star, found in Minnesota only on the Paleozoic Plateau, grows abundantly on the cliff faces.
