The bluffs along the Mississippi River


Welcome to Lilydale, located on the Mississippi River, and home to about 900 residents. Our little town, established in 1886, began on the river flats but after being flooded out a number of times, the towns people decided to move up to the top of the bluff. What was once farmland and a gravel pit has been transformed over time into lovely townhomes, condominium and apartment buildings with a few single family homes as well. We love the beautiful river views! With an abundance of outdoor opportunities along with being right in the heart of the Twin Cities Metropolitan area our residents find they are happy they chose Lilydale as their home.
