Godahl sits on the boundary line for Brown and Watonwan counties, occupying two counties. The community is located between Sleepy Eye and St. James on Minnesota State Highway 4. The community is located at the junction of Minnesota State Highway 4 with County Roads 6 and 10.
Godahl was settled by Norwegian immigrants and named in honor of their home, called Gode Dahl ("Good Valley"). The town had a post office from 1894 until 1907, and a station of the Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis and Omaha Railway. The community failed to develop, and for many years the only remnant of its commercial aspirations was the cooperative store built in 1894. The store closed on December 31, 2016.
