The City of Le Sueur is located approximately 30 miles south of the Twin Cities metro area on Highway 169. The city was originally known for the Green Giant company, whose symbol, the Jolly Green Giant, still welcomes visitors and residents to the city on a large billboard. Today Le Sueur is home to several unique industries including Davisco International, a food processor, Le Sueur Inc., a casting and molding manufacturer, and Cambria, a manufacturer of quartz countertops.
The Le Sueur Electric Utility Department has been providing the city with electric power since the early 1900's, when a 100 horsepower steam engine was installed. In 1992, Le Sueur and seven other cities joined together to form MMPA.
