Minnesota’s Smallest Town Has Less Than 10 People!
It's the smallest town in the state of Minnesota and was named after a county attorney. It's an almost three hour drive from Duluth and if you blink, you may not see it.
Funkley, MN has a population of 5 (according to the 2010 census) and was incorperated as a village in 1904 at the site of a junction along the Minnesota and International Railway. The town was named after Henry Funkley, a county attorney.
You may be familiar with the Funkley Bar off Hwy 71 like my coworker Josh who instantly named it after I told him what the smallest town was in the land of 10,000 lakes. Mayor Emil Erickson owns the bar and will gladly serve you drinks, if you're of age of course.
Let me know if you have any stories of visiting Funkley or any other small town in Minnesota in the comments below. Road trip anyone?
