About This Place
Vergas is a city in Otter Tail County, Minnesota, United States. The population was 331 at the 2010 census.
Vergas claims it is home of the World's Largest Loon, actually a 20-foot-high (6.1 m) sculpture of a loon, the Minnesota state bird.
The community was platted in 1903 as Altona, but quickly changed its name to match the name of its Soo Line Railroad station, which had been named after a series of sleeping cars that traveled between Minneapolis, Minnesota and Winnipeg, Manitoba.
