The Minnesota River Valley Scenic Byway was fully designated in 1996 by Minnesota State Scenic Byway Commission. The byway was nominated by many groups and individuals including:

  • Western Minnesota Prairie Waters Tourism Coalition
  • Minnesota River Valley Task Force
  • Region 9 Development Commission
  • Upper Minnesota Valley Regional Development Commission
  • The affected counties, cities, townships, and state agencies along the byway

The Minnesota River Valley Scenic Byway Alliance was formally organized as a Minnesota nonprofit corporation (according to Minnesota Statute Chapter 31https://www.mnrivervalley.com/online-membership-form/7A) in February 1997. The Alliance continues to meet monthly to “promote and develop the scenic byway along the Minnesota River.”
