The City of Silver Bay is located in Lake County, Minnesota, on the scenic North Shore of Lake Superior approximately 56 miles northeast of Duluth, MN on US Highway 61. The community, which was originally built by Reserve Mining Company for the employees in its taconite processing plant, was incorporated in 1956 and has approximately 2000 residents. Silver Bay, the newest community on the North Shore, lies three miles northeast of Beaver Bay, the oldest community on the North Shore.

Come visit our picturesque community situated in a beautiful valley. Of special noteworthiness are our summer hiking trails and our winter cross country skiing and well-groomed snowmobile trails. Our scenic, challenging nine hole public golf course with four river crossings is one of the best in the state. Our progressive technology oriented public library provides a wealth of resources.
