About Foley

Welcome to Foley, MN

The City of Foley is a thriving rural community with traditional family values located 50 minutes north of Minneapolis.

It is the Benton County seat, centrally located in one of the original nine counties of the first territorial legislature. Our diversified economic base, strong educational system, and many area recreational activities make the town a great choice whether you are looking to open a business, raise a family, or a new place to call home.

You’ll find us one hour from the northern lakes area of Brainerd, or, if big city life is what you crave, the Twin Cities and St. Cloud are only a short drive away. Highway 23 and 25 intersect in Foley, making travel in any direction easy.

Looking to stay close? We offer two city parks with playgrounds, a ball field, and park shelters, perfect for family gatherings. We also have a Municipal Swimming Pool, golf course, walking trails, and our historic movie theater! With so much to offer, our town is a great place to live and visit!
