Location of Tower, Minnesota

Tower is located 24 miles north of Virginia. Here, visitors and residents alike can experience some of the most captivating scenery in Northeastern Minnesota; the vivid color extravaganza accompanying each season, the natural beauty of Lake Vermilion, the breathtaking sunsets...

The city was incorporated in 1889, which makes it the oldest city in the Arrowhead region. It owes its establishment to the Soudan Mine. Tower is home to the Tower Train Museum; near the museum is McKinley Monument, the first erected in honor of William McKinley shortly after his assassination in 1901.

Recreation:
Mesabi Trail

The Taconite State Trail stretches 165 miles from Grand Rapids to Ely and intersects with the Arrowhead State Trail just west of Lake Vermillion. Portions are paved for biking and in-line skating. The remainder of the natural surface trail is used primarily for snowmobiling in the winter. The trail goes through a few areas that have standing water in the summer, however portions of the trail are suitable for horseback riding, hiking, and mountain biking. The Taconite Trail winds through forests of birch and aspen intertwined with pine, leading the visitor by many isolated lakes and streams. From Grand Rapids heading north, you see the impact of the taconite and iron mining industry. The northern portion of the trail terrain is rolling and tree covered as it winds through state and national forest land.

Lake Vermilion's length of over 40 miles (east to west) provides houseboaters with the opportunity to experience everything. Lake Vermilion is well marked with buoys for novice navigators, but the more than 365 islands and jagged shoreline can challenge even the most experienced sailor. In fact, Lake Vermilion in terms of shoreline, is the largest lake in Minnesota.
