Frontenac

Frontenac

Frontenac is comprised of two unincorporated communities located about a mile apart. Old Frontenac was founded in 1839 along the shores of Lake Pepin near its widest spot. The area was settled and developed by two brothers, Israel and Lewis Garrard, who were enamored with the natural beauty of the bluffs and prairies that surround the lake. The community is now a designated Historic District due to the several large homes on tree-lined streets that were built around the civil war era.
