Welcome to the City of Truman, Minnesota. Truman is a community of 1,100 that lies twenty miles to the north of the Iowa border in south central Minnesota. Founded when the railroad came through the area in 1899, our city features an independent school district, exceptional quality of life, and a safe atmosphere to raise a family. We think you’ll agree that Truman is truly a great place to call home!
