When you visit the heart of Bluff Country, take the drive on Minnesota Highway 80 and you will find Wykoff, a little town with a lot of German pride.
The village was founded in 1881 by Cyrus Wykoff, founder of the railroad. Wykoff is the gateway to Forestville State Park, and only eight miles from the Root River Bike Trail. Good Earth Village, a church camp, is five miles from Wykoff.
The member-owned Wykoff Grocery Store is a convenient place to stop to load up on supplies for that picnic or camping trip.
Have lunch at the Bank Gift Haus & Tea Room or shop in their unique gift store and the Gold Street Pizza is open for dinner. Visit Ed’s Museum, a former Jack Sprat grocery store owned by Ed Krueger, Wykoff ‘s historian and self appointed collector of Wykoff memorabilia. Wykoff’s School Museum is attached to Ed’s, a great place to reminisce about one’s school years. You will also enjoy a visit to the jail built in 1913, which is now a unique B&B.
