Waverly, Minnesota

Former hometown of Hubert H. Humphrey

While my mom's husband, Duffy, has lived here most of his life, my Mom is a relative newcomer. I have even spent time living here for two short periods of my adult life. It is located about an hour due west of Minneapolis. It is primarily a farming community, although the area is anchored by Lakes Waverly (little and big). It has a very small population, although that seems to be changing as über-urban seekers are moving here to be as far from the city life as possible, yet within driving distance to the city. I tried it and hated the hour drive each way. But that's just me! I have a poem in my upcoming book of poetry dedicated to this city.
