Angle Inlet Minnesota Community Guide


Location:
The Northwest Angle, known simply as the Angle by locals, and coterminous with Angle Township, is a small part of northern Lake of the Woods County, Minnesota that is the only part of the United States outside of Alaska that is north of the 49th parallel. That parallel is the northern boundary of the 48 contiguous states extending eastward from the west coast along the northern boundaries of Washington, Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, and part of Minnesota to the Northwest Angle.

Further east, U.S. territory does not extend that far north. Map projections sometimes create an optical illusion that Maine extends farther north than that; that illusion does not occur in maps in which parallels of latitude are straight lines. Like Alaska and Point Roberts, Washington, the Northwest Angle cannot be reached from the rest of the U.S. without either going through Canada or crossing water—specifically, the Lake of the Woods. The population was 152 at the 2000 census.

The northwest corner of the Northwest Angle is at 49°23′50.28″N, 95°08′56.7″W.
The Treaty of Paris (1783), concluded between the United States and Great Britain at the end of the American Revolutionary War, stated that the boundary between U.S. territory and the British possessions to the north would run "…through the Lake of the Woods to the most northwestern most point thereof, and from thence on a due west course to the river Mississippi…" The parties did not suspect that the source of the Mississippi, Lake Itasca, was south of that point. Consequently the Northwest Angle is the result of 18th-century ignorance of geography. In the Anglo-American Convention of 1818, the error was corrected by having the boundary run due south from the northwest point of the lake to the 49th parallel and then westward along it. When this north-south line was surveyed, it was found to intersect other bays of the lake and therefore cut off a portion of U.S. territory, now known as the Northwest Angle.

The land forming Angle Township is 123.09 square miles (318.81 km²) in area, which actually includes several islands and two small exclaves which are below (south of) the 49th parallel north. The exclaves are in the extreme southwest part of the township, south of the southeast corner of Manitoba, and not far from the northeast corner of Roseau County. Of the 2000 census population of 152, there were 118 living on the mainland, and 34 persons on the islands in Lake of the Woods. All of the populated islands are north of the 49th parallel. The mainland portion of the township north of the 49th parallel has an area of 302.075 km² (116.632 sq mi). The total land area of all islands is 16.325 km² (6.303 sq mi), and the two exclaves total 0.408 km² (0.157 sq mi). The township has the last one-room public school in the state. The border crossing is unstaffed. Travelers using the single gravel road into the Angle are expected to use the telephone provided to contact Canadian or U.S. Customs and make their declarations. This fact has caused controversy among many who feel that this unsecured border in a post-9-11 world is dangerous and could lead to terrorists and illegal immigrants entering the United States without anyone's knowledge.[1] [2]
Secession from the United States and annexation by Canada has been proposed by some area residents on occasion, but little action has resulted given the proposal's non-urgent nature.

Author Tim O'Brien popularized knowledge of the location with his bestselling novel, In the Lake of the Woods, set in the Angle.

History:  

ANGLE INLET, a post office in T. 168N, R. 34W (Angle 2) since 1936, located on the west bank of the Pine River; the site grew at a location where travelers left the steamboats from Fort Frances to board stagecoaches for their overland journey to Winnipeg.
