Welcome to the Two Harbors Chamber of Commerce
The Two Harbors Area Chamber of Commerce is comprised of members in the Duluth, Knife River, Two Harbors, Beaver Bay, Silver Bay, Finland, Isabella and Grand Marais communities in Northeastern Minnesota.
Our diverse business base helps maintain a healthy economic community. We manufacture backpacks, grapples, siding and logging equipment. We are welders, food servers, carpenters, teachers, healers, artisans, bankers, sales clerks, factory workers, technicians and professionals.
We are an area rich in history – fishing, mining, lighthouses, shipping, logging and trains. Our area is a water lovers paradise: streams, rivers, ponds, waterfalls, lakes and the greatest lake of them all, Lake Superior. Superior is the largest fresh water lake in the world. The activities one can enjoy here are endless. If you love nature, you are in the right spot. We have State Parks, National and State Forests, many community parks, wayside rests and four-season trails galore.
The mission of the Two Harbors Area Chamber of Commerce is to create and enhance a business climate in which area businesses can prosper.
