Welcome to Houston. We're growers, creators, innovators, educators and a whole lot more. We work hard, but enjoy rural valley life in our little corner of the driftless in Southeast Minnesota.

Most of all, we're proud of our community and invite you share it with us. 

Visit, live in, or dream of scenic bluff country, have a hoot at the International Owl Center, explore our parks and trails, experience local events and businesses or just plain have a good time.
