How do I locate my property line?
Most newly developed lots should have a surveying pin at the corners of the lot. These ½ inch round pipes are typically buried in the ground and you may need a metal detector to locate. The metal pipe may have a cap with the surveyor’s information on it. These pipes shall not be moved or removed. Contact the Community Development Office at 507-645-3059 for additional information.

Property information can be obtained from the Rice County and Dakota County websites.Property Line Information
