Its neighbor, Motley, is just a few miles away and has another 1,000 people. The two towns collaborate on many community-wide initiatives, including the local school system. Staples boasts many attractive storefronts and businesses in the downtown area, giving it a ‘Main Street USA’ feel.

Staples is proud of its rich history and accomplishments in the areas of business, education, healthcare, athletics and cultural activities. Community involvement, passion, and loyalty is alive and well in Staples — from the town rallying around local sports teams, to attending concerts and other fine arts-related events, to supporting local philanthropic efforts, to cultural activities representing the strong Scandinavian and Finnish ancestries in the area.
