History:  

SILVER CREEK Township, organized May 3, 1905, received the name of a creek flowing into Lake Superior four miles northeast of Two Harbors, translated from the Ojibwe name. The village in section 34 (T. 54N, R. 10W) was begun about 1890 by Henry Clark at what was known first as Clark or Clark's Crossing in section 10, which had a station of the Duluth and Northern Minnesota Railroad in section 21.
