I realize this is long time since post. CORRECT location is NORTH of HWY. 26 & 33, on Hwy 26 approx. 1 mile. Minnesota Junction received it's name because of a railroad junction of old Minnesota/St. Paul railroad. Approx. 1 mile north of 26/33 intersection you will cross old rail tracks, if you would look to right there is remnant of other tracks now a bike trail. There used to be a small "spur or horseshoe" that would allow engineers to drop and change direction of certain rail cars. The town was built around the junction of railroad tracks. There used to be a rail station, etc. there Minnesota junction started out to really grow, but didn't for various reasons. There was no factory there, nor is that the reason it grew. It was because of the railroad.
