Pipestone is a town of ~4,000 people in the southwest corner of Minnesota. There are many good venues to dine at, but not too many places to go to have a good time. There are a few nice parks around town, along with the Pipestone National Monument. The cost-of-living is lower than the national average and the school district is fairly competitive. Pipestone is relatively safe, family-friendly, and a tight-knit community that almost anyone would enjoy calling home.

Pipestone is a small community. It's a great place to start a family. It has a variety of things to do, considering it is a small town. The people are very nice and helpful.
My experience in pipestone the food is okay the houses were pretty good cleaning up the place to go for the water they had a great selection and the service is really nice they also had the water on and it is really fun to bring to my house so we will be coming here for the lunch break from a beaver party for the night we go there on the go to sit outside in and out and lots to do outside and it will probably come back for the night or evening it will probably come back for the night or Sunday or something haha was a good day and we were going back to eat it again but the place was so fun we were there on the way back and the place is so good we were there and it looked good but it still took us the place we were going back and then they had a great time
