State sells Lake Superior land for $1.2 million
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A chunk of state-owned land on the shores of Lake Superior has been sold for about $1 million and will benefit public schools.
The 65-acre property includes nearly 1,700 feet of lakeshore near Silver Bay. It was sold to two individuals during a public auction Wednesday. State lawmakers last year approved the sale of lake land to boost funding for schools. The sale had previously been prohibited unless approved by the legislators.
