It all started on their first date..
In 1979, Ron took Tammy on their first date and brought her to this abandoned quarry site, a 20-acre plot of land in Sauk Rapids, Minnesota. He told her of his plans for the property and how he wanted to open a Trout farm. Ron later purchased the land and they began building their dream. Ron & Tammy named the property Quarry 2, what was then known as a place where you could catch your own trout in a unique and relaxing atmosphere.
Everyone loved fishing at the trout farm, and many more people, including companies & corporations, saw Molitor’s as a place to get together with friends, family, and co-workers. The surrounding community began to recognize the unique quarry environment, but it wasn’t just the fish or the environment that was bringing people in, it was Ron and Tammy’s attention to detail given to each guest, and every party, that enticed the crowds to come. The new name became Molitor’s Trout Heaven Park.
Over the years, many additions to the park were made, including ball fields, a mini-golf course, petting zoo, and trails for hayrides and sleigh rides. In 1998, Ron and Tammy decided they wanted to open a new attraction that captured their love for one holiday in particular. With that, Molitor’s Haunted Acres premiered, beginning an annual month long Halloween tradition. Molitor’s Haunted Acres has now grown into a huge show bringing in customers from all over!
Many companies, corporations & private parties have enjoyed Molitor’s Trout Heaven Park, for their Annual gatherings. As time went on people began to realize how perfect the setting at Molitor’s would be for a wedding. The bookings started coming in, and have grown by leaps and bounds over the years, both as a ceremony and a reception venue.
In 2010, the building of Molitor’s Quarry Grill & Bar became a reality. This 20 acres of land had more than enough room to continue with all sizes of seasonal events done over the years. Molitor’s Quarry Events would continue on with the addition of an open all year round Grill & Bar. The doors opened to the new restaurant in September of that year. Many people have come through those doors, and most don’t like to leave. Molitor’s Quarry is a comfortable place, one where you always feel welcome. A wonderful venue to plan events of a few guests to several hundred, where you never run out of things to do, and you are always sure to have a great meal and a great time.
