New London WaterDays

New London, MN 56273

New London, Minnesota is the oldest town in Kandiyohi County. It had its pioneer beginnings in 1850, when Louis Larson discovered a waterfall while out on a trapping expedition and visualized a mill. In 1861, he took homestead on a large piece of land, which includes most of present day New London. Larson later named the place for his old home town – New London, Wisconsin.  New London continued to grow in size and population and became an official city in 1889. New London WaterDays is the town’s celebration that takes place the third weekend in July.  With activities spanning Tuesday-Sunday, the goal is to celebrate as a community and invite all to join in on the fun!
