Lake St. Croix Beach has a history that began in 1925. Back then is was a dense lakefront development of over 100 blocks that was laid out by Warren Smadbeck of New York. The plan included a beachfront clubhouse, a long dock extending into the river, streets with names such as Riviera, and a wide boulevard along Neal Avenue. Lots were sold and promoted by the St. Paul Daily News. A variety of modest cottages were built on the small lots, a number of which are still standing. Lake St. Croix Beach was incorporated in 1951.
The Lake St. Croix area had previously been the site of an interesting summer house build for George H. Atwood. Known as the Anchorage, the lakefront property was surrounded by 30 acres of land. In 1908, the property was sold to the St. Paul Automobile Club. The club provided guests with "motor-boating, canoeing, sailing, rowing, fishing, and of course swimming." In 1912, the club relocated to White Bear Lake.
Today, you’ll find a thriving riverfront community with close proximity to the village of Afton to the south and Lakeland to the north, and the I 94 interstate allows for easy access to Hudson Wisconsin to the east and is just minutes from the Twin Cities to the west.
Housing found here varies widely from converted cabins to year round homes to newer structures built on re-imagined parcels. many of which have been combined to create additional space to suit the requirements of those looking for larger homesites which to settle.
