Ghent

GhentThe City of Ghent is a quiet, Belgian American community located approximately six miles Northwest of Marshall, MN. Often called the “Rolle Bolle Capital of the World,” the city supports indoor and outdoor Rolle Bolle courts, three city parks, and is home to the annual Belgian American Days celebration every August. Community residents generally choose between Minneota, Lynd, and Marshall for school choices and the new Bluebird Creek housing subdivision offers a suburban feel in a small community.
