Fillmore County, Minnesota
Welcome to Preble Township!
Our community is located along the eastern edge of Fillmore County in Southeastern Minnesota. The heart of bluff country with the South Fork Root River and the 'Big Woods' hardwood forests running through the township. We value our small family farms, rural residences, recreational cabins, streams, woods and trails -- and the rural lifestyle they provide us. An abundance of wildlife -- trout, deer, turkeys, coyotes, fox, eagles, pheasants and people.
We have a population of about 201 people and 84 households. Many of us have lived in the township our entire lives. Ancestors of some of our families settled the township in the 1850s and 1860s.
