Lamberton is a friendly rural agricultural community of approximately 800 people in southwest Minnesota within a easy commute to Marshall, New Ulm, Mankato, and Redwood Falls. Lamberton has much to offer but many nearby cities offer additional employment, shopping, education, sports, and cultural opportunities as well. Lamberton is home to Red Rock Central High School (ranked as the 37th best high school in Minnesota), a senior care center (which is located across the street from the church), Meadowland Farmers Coop, and Highwater Ethanol Plant.
