The seat of Goodhue County, Red Wing is located on the Mississippi River southeast of the Twin Cities. The first permanent European settlers arrived in 1849, and the city was incorporated just 8 years later. Owing to its Mississippi River location, it became one of the largest wheat markets in the world by the end of the 19th century. This prosperity is evident in the rich collection of historic buildings in the busy and compact downtown.
