Crosby

Trip Planner USA  /  Minnesota  /  Crosby
Crosby is a city in Crow Wing County, Minnesota, United States. The population was 2,386 at the 2010 census. It is part of the Brainerd Micropolitan Statistical Area. Crosby is adjacent to its twin city of Ironton. It is one of the cities in the Cuyuna Range.HistoryThis was a town that was built for the sole purpose of mining. The town was named for George H. Crosby, a businessperson in the mining industry. In the 1932 local elections, the voters of Crosby elected Karl Emil Nygard as President of the Village Council and thus became the first city in the United States to have a Communist mayor.Crosby was the location of the worst mining disaster in Minnesota, the Milford Mine disaster. On February 5, 1924, a new tunnel was blasted too close to nearby Foley Lake, and water rushed in, killing 41 miners. In August 1957, Dr. David G. Simons, a 35-year-old Air Force major, climbed to nearly above the Earth as part of Project Manhigh. The flight, which was launched from the 400ft Portsmouth Mine Pit Lake in Crosby, helped the country take its fledgling steps into space exploration. Simons returned to Crosby in 2007 to mark the anniversary of the Man High project.
