In the southwest corner of Kandiyohi County on Highway 7 is the town of Prinsburg. A town that has established itself as a close-knit community where faith and family are very important. These two Prinsburg values will be evident upon entering the town. With a population just under 500 people, Prinsburg manages to have two, large Christian Reformed churches and a new, private school. The religious dedication and spirit of Prinsburg residents carries out into the community. You’ll find cosmetically neat housing and yards, as well as an overall safe and peaceful neighborhood ideal for raising a family.

History:  

PRINSBURG, a city at the center of Holland Township, section 16, platted in 1886, commemorates Martin Prins, member of a land firm in Holland, who came here and in 1884 acquired about 35,000 acres of railroad lands, mostly in this county. He died in 1887. The city was incorporated as a village June 25, 1952; it began when acreage within the 34,000 acres of land in Kandiyohi and Renville Counties, owned by two partners, Prins and Theodore Koch, was offered for sale in 1885, with the promise that as soon as 20 Dutch families had settled, one half of the cost of a church would be contributed by the partners; 40 lots were sold, and 40 acres in the middle of the township were set aside for a village; the post office was established during three periods, 1887-89, 1896-1904, and from 1927, each time located in the general store.
