“northernmost point of the contiguous states!”

The Northwest Angle, known simply as the Angle by locals, and coextensive with Angle Township, is a part of northern Lake of the Woods County, Minnesota. The population was 119 at the 2010 census. Except for minor surveying errors, it is the only place in the United States outside Alaska that is north of the 49th parallel, which forms the international border from the Angle west to Washington State. It is one of only six non-island locations in the 48 contiguous states that are exclaves of the U.S. although not directly connected to them by land. At 49.22° north latitude, it is the northernmost township in Minnesota and the northernmost point in the contiguous 48 states. The unincorporated communities of Angle Inlet and Penasse are located in the Northwest Angle. Seventy percent of the land of the Angle is held in trust by the Red Lake Indian Reservation (Ojibwa).Although the Angle is listed as one of several distinct regions of Minnesota, its total population was only 152 at the 2000 census. The land is mostly forest and the area is mostly water. -Wikipedia
