"Foley, Mn" Foley by lindaark

Foley Travel Guide: 2 reviews and 8 photos

I have lived here since 1970. Foley is a great small town in central Minnesota named after the Foley Bros that deveoped the area in the early 1900's. A railway station put it on the map, with a saw mill and the rest followed, a church, blacksmith, saloon, and general store, bank and a school. Today Foley is a bedroom community of St. Cloud, and a short hour to Minneapolis and St Paul, the capitol. A mere hour north, and we have the vacation heartland, Brainerd Lakes area. A great place to live and raise a family. Summers can be anywhere from hot and humid to short and cool. Winters can be mild or brutal. The number one thing people talk about: "the wheather".
