History:  

SOLWAY, a city in section 28 of Lammers Township, and the Solway Lumber Company, which formerly worked in its vicinity, were named after Solway Firth, the wide inlet from the Irish Sea between England and Scotland. The post office began in 1898, the school was built in 1899, and by 1900 there were seven saloons, two hotels, two livery barns, several restaurants and stores, a weekly newspaper, a blacksmith, a feed store, a jail, a sawmill, and a hall, many of which burned in fires between 1905 and 1910; it had a station of the Great Northern Railway.
