Blue Earth, MN

About Blue EarthBlue Earth was named for the Blue Earth River, which received its name from the bluish clay found in its high riverbanks.

The Chocolate Dream, the predecessor of the Eskimo Pie, originated in Blue Earth, which also is home to the Jolly Green Giant statue; more than 55 feet tall, it stands in Green Giant Park, off I-90 at 1126 Green Giant Ln. The statue overlooks particularly rich farmland and symbolizes the Green Giant/Seneca Foods Co.'s longevity in town. On the park grounds is the Little Red Barn, which contains exhibits and information about the statue. It's open Mon.-Sat. 10-4, Memorial Day-Labor Day; phone (507) 526-3001.

The Giant Museum, 113 S. Nicollet St., contains memorabilia associated with the jolly one and his pint-size cohort, Little Green Sprout; for additional information contact the chamber of commerce.
