Kelly Lake is located about halfway between Nashwalk and the town of Hibbing. The population is 947. Of that population, 423 are female and 524 are male. There are 8679 households in Kelly Lake. There is 443.249 square miles of land and 11.434 of lake.
Many have said that Kelly Lake got its name from a man who was out mining that came across the lake and his name was Micheal Kelly. No one knows if this tale is true or not but it seems to make sense since there is a mine right behind the lake. It is a small but wonderful community to live in which is far enough out of town to get away but close enough to not have to drive far to get into town.
