Crosby Travel Guide: 2 reviews and 3 photos

Crosby is a former iron ore mining town in north central Minnesota, population around 2,300.

Colder than a mug's wump in the winter and the summers consist of road construction, mossies that have their own runway at the local airport and scenery that is to die for.

We have lived here for over 20 years after spending the first ten years of our marriage in Texas and California.

Crosby has been named "Antique Capital of Minnesota" by the govenor's office. I think that might refer to all of us old people who live here.

If you wind your way to this outpost of civilization, stop in the local post office and ask for the couple whose wife is Aussie and Jim, the postmaster will laugh and tell ya how to get in touch. If we are home, we will shout you a dinner.
