WELCOME TO ELLENDALE
Ellendale sits 14 miles south of Owatonna, and 16 miles north of Albert Lea at I-35 and Highway 30 (exit 26).
Named for the wife of C.J. Ives, a railroad president. Ellen Dale was a friend to all who worked the line. A beautiful, prosperous little village, named for the kind and thoughtful Ellen.
Today, Ellendale is a peaceful, community-minded, friendly city—home to more than 600 people—offering a low cost of living, minimal traffic, no city sales tax, updated water and sewer system, and a strong sense of community.
Due to the fact that the Emergency siren located near the school is temporarily out of service and awaiting repairs, we urge everyone to either have a Weather Alert Radio or sign up for Steele County Everbridge alerts.
Sign up for EMERGENCY Alerts on your mobile phone, land line phone, text and or email.
TORNADO, HAIL, and STRONG WIND WARNINGS

YOU control what alerts you get and what times they can alert you.
So no middle of the night calls if you don’t want them.
This is not the same as an AMBER Alert or
WEA/wireless emergency alerts on your mobile.
