Welcome to Pipestone

Pipestone, MN - home of the red stone pipe

Pipestone has one of Minnesota's largest historic districts with twenty beautiful Sioux quartzite buildings. All are listed on the National Historic Register.

Quarrying of pipestone at the Pipestone National Monument appears to have begun as early as 1200 A.D, and is a tradition still alive today. Visitors are encouraged to watch live demonstrations of pipes and effigies being carved at the Cultural Center.

Join us in July for the Keepers Traditional PowWow. Enjoy music, dance, art, craft, and Indian Tacos. A few short steps away step back into a time of Buckskinners and Fur Traders at the Love of the Land Rendezvous. 

Civil War Days is a celebration of our past in a beautiful historic setting. Activities include Infantry, Artillery, authentic Civil War battle and historic life demonstrations. Next Pipestone Civil War Days are being scheduled for August 2014.

Enjoy a night at the Performing Arts Center. Entertainment includes classic, country folk, and Community Theater plus a Red Hat Extravaganza.

If shopping is your bag, Fort Pipestone and the numerous shops and boutiques offer interesting and unique gifts from antiques to accessories.

Unlike most "visitor stops," Pipestone has not lost its charm or affordability. Pipestone has a lot to offer from Native American History to the latest in Wind Technology. Visit or call the Pipestone Chamber & Visitor Center for FREE Pipestone brochures and maps.
