Traveling west, just 12 miles from Willmar on Highway 23, is the vibrant small town of Raymond. It’s where you’ll find a safe neighborhood with a variety of fun and family-friendly recreational opportunities to keep residents active and healthy. In fact, it’s where two of the county’s largest recreational businesses are located—Tensen Marine and Apol’s Harley Davidson.

Raymond takes great pride in the fact that it has established such a well-rounded community. Don’t be surprised to find a cook-out or community picnic after church on Sunday or a patriotic celebration honoring the veterans who’ve fought for our country. The neighborhoods are not only friendly, but also safe for kids to race their bikes to one of the many parks. It’s hard to fully understand all of the reasons why “Everybody Loves Raymond” until you experience it for yourself!

Raymond is a part of Independent School District No. 2180, otherwise known as MACCRAY (Maynard-Clara City-Raymond) Schools—Home of the Wolverines! Raymond hosts MACCRAY East Elementary School, which is home to preschool and Kindergarten through 6th grade students. The other elementary school, West Elementary, is located in Maynard and junior and senior high students attend MACCRAY High School in Clara City, just 7 miles west on Highway 23.
