Welcome to Alvarado

This site is dedicated to the history and people of Alvarado, Minnesota.

Founded in 1905, this small town in northwestern Minnesota is home to about 370 residents, but many of us who have left still consider it home.

This website is a work in progress and a labor of love. What started out as a two week project to digitize the town’s self-published history has grown and evolved. New content is being added weekly. As the information gets added, you’ll be able to read about the history of Alvarado by decade, along with some interesting or important happenings in local, regional, national, and world news.

The content on this website is free and available to share.

Have a photo, story, video or audio file to share? Or an edit or correction? Please submit them, and we’ll post!
