Pennock - A Community with Pride
Welcome to the City of Pennock website. The City of Pennock is a small friendly community
with a population of 508, located 5 miles west of Willmar on Hwy 12.
We have several businesses throughout Pennock. The Pit Stop, seen here in this photo,
is located at the intersection of HWY 12 and County Road 1.
The village of Pennock was originally known as St Johns. There were, however, two St Johns
stations on the great Northern, so in the fall of 1891, the name was changed to Pennock....
