Lakeland Shores, MN
Lakeland Shores, Minnesota, is a small, mostly residential city nestled on the West bank of the St. Croix River in the heart of the Lower St. Croix Valley. Nestled on the West bank of the St. Croix River, just south of Interstate Highway 94 and surrounded by the City of Lakeland. In the 1940s the Jones family had their farm surveyed and began selling off 100 to 150 ft. lots along Lakeland Shores Road. Transforming so much land from agriculture to residential greatly changed the dynamics of the town, and led to a dramatic increase in taxes for the local residents. In protest of the high taxes, and to protect their lifestyle, area residents incorporated their own city, Lakeland Shores, in 1949.
