The largest Hot Falls on earth are found in Sibley Park in Mankato, MN. The DeScy Hot Falls were first discovered in 1917 by Father Henri DeScy. "The Blessed Virgin has smiled upon the people in this cold land. I will build a fine church," he said. Father DeScy built a fine church and charged only $5.00 for pilgrims to view this wonderful work of nature. Unfortunately the church fell into disrepair after Father DeScy was incarcerated by the IRS for tax evasion.

Viewing the falls now is free!
