Agency Bay, Minnesota
Located in the southwestern portion of the Chippewa Leech Lake Reservation, is the Chippewa settlement of Agency Bay. It is located on the eastern shores of Agency Bay. There are around 50 housing units located in Agency Bay, Minnesota. There may be more around the settlement but resorts are in the way. The population of Agency Bay may be between 150 and 200. It is difficult to see all housing units because of the dense forest growth and the resorts in that region. The housing units are located along Onigum Road Northwest, Midway Drive Northwest, Midway Circle Northwest, Stony Point Camp Road, and Old Agency Trail Northwest. The name of this settlement can actually go by Old Agency. The first Leech Lake Agency was located in the vicinity of this settlement. The beginnings of this settlement go back to 1855. The agency was in use by 1856 but the Chippewa's were not particularly happy about their predicament. On a couple of occasions Chippewa soldiers drove the whites out. After the 1862 Minnesota Indian War, the agency remained. It was used by United States soldiers during the War of 1898. Northern Minnesota remained unsafe into the early 20th century. The region is one that is especially beautiful during spring, summer, and autumn.
