Head down to the gov't building and purchase a plat book of Olsted county. This should give you the info you need.

or i think you can order them online if you are anti people farm and home publisher/publishing

you will never regret the purchase of a plat book even though it is 30 dollars. It will be the better 30 you ever spent. ike

The County zoning office, the registrar or the SWCD office should have a plat book that they will let you have a look at, if you don't want to lay out the 30 bucks for the book. Land ownership is public information and they'll tell you who owns a piece of land if you ask.

Although I do agree with ike, in that you'll never regret the purchase of a plat book. Using them together with Google Earth, Microsoft Virtual Earth, DNR airphotos and the like, and you can pretty much figure out where all the property lines are and who owns what.

My copies of the Goodhue and Wabasha county plat books I have are getting worn out I've used them so much.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
