Cresson is an unincorporated community located in Pipestone County, Minnesota. The elevation is 1,673 feet. Cresson appears on the Elkton SW U.S. Geological Survey Map.[2][1]

Close to the bordering states of South Dakota to the west and Iowa to the south, Cresson lies in rural southwest Minnesota near the Pipestone National Monument, a National Park Service property established in 1937. The monument's 301 acres protect tallgrass prairie and quarries of red pipestone, or catlinite, traditionally used by Native Americans to make pipes.[3]
