Minnesota is full of very unique roadside attractions. Many of them are famous for being big – like the World’s Largest Ball of Twine in Darwin, The Jolly Green Giant in Blue Earth, or the World’s Largest Paul Bunyan in Akeley, but this morning I stumbled across one that is famous for how small it is.

According to Road Side Attractions, Minnesota’s smallest church is located near Luverne which is about 3-hours west of Rochester close to the South Dakota border. Todd Berger left a review on the tourist website and said the tiny church is located 2-miles north of Luverne.

The church, known as the Blue Mound Wayside Chapel, is really, really small, but looks so cool - It can only seat between 4 people. A ton of people have left 5-star reviews on Google – I didn’t even know people left reviews about churches but I guess it makes sense considering this doubles as a tourist attraction.

  • Aaron Blank’s review said, “Stop here for a quiet place to pray, sing and worship.”
  • Ryan Tellberg posted, “A serene and peaceful chapel along the highway it's very inviting.”
  • Galen Johnson said, “Worth the detour for a refreshing spot to rest or meditate.

I’m not sure I’d drive 3-hours to see it, but if I was taking the family to Mount Rushmore or happened to be in that area for something else I’d probably stop to check it out.
