Cannon Falls


The best city is Cannon Falls. It is the only town in the United States that has the name Cannon Falls.

Cannon Falls has two rivers called the little Cannon River and the big Cannon River. The names came from the french settlers. They parked their canoes near here and called it Riviere aux Canots. People thought they were saying River of Cannons.  Our town was first called Cannon River Falls. Eventually our town’s name was changed to Cannon Falls, The city of Cannon Falls was settled in 1854 and organized in 1858.

People came to Cannon Falls from different towns. Some people worked on farms. Some people worked at the mills.  One fun thing to do in Cannon Falls is go golfing and go to the Historical Museum.

I think it’s a pretty great place to live.
