This is the official site of City of Crosby, Minnesota
Crosby, Minnesota, is a city rich in history, abundant in resources and blessed with natural beauty. From 1910 to the early 1980s, the lifeblood of the Cuyuna Range flowed red with iron ore. And the heart of the Cuyuna Range was, and is, Crosby. Today, the mines have closed and are filled with crystal-clear water, and the hills of overburden are covered in poplar and spruce. More than half our city is located within the 5,000 acre Cuyuna Country State Recreation Area, which has more than 24 miles of natural shoreline, seven miles of paved bike trail, and soon, nearly 25 miles of world-class, IMBA certified mountain bike trails
Our major industry today is the Cuyuna Regional Medical Center, whose promotional slogan is “Crosby Cares.” CRMC employs more than 700 people and is the county’s third largest employer. Heartwood Senior Living, the Hallett Cottages and the Crosby Eye Clinic contribute to our healthcare-based economy.
Crosby is a great place to live and play. Come see for yourself.
