Since its establishment as a trading post in 1852, new residents have flocked to Savage, Minnesota because of its location to the Twin Cities and its natural beauty.
Savage is home to two nature areas. The Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge consists of 14,000 acres along the Minnesota River. It is the largest of the four wildlife refuges in metro areas in the country. Murphy-Hanrehan Park Preserve is a nature-lover’s paradise, with many rare species of birds and animals living there. It has an extensive cross-country ski trail system, a six-mile mountain bike trail, and 14 miles of horse trails covering 2,786 acres.
With a long and colorful history, Savage has seen many historic moments, including a plane crash involving Charles Lindbergh in 1923. Four years later, he made his historic transatlantic flight.
Located just 18 miles south of Minneapolis and 20 miles southwest of St. Paul, Savage is a great apartment renting location.
