Terrace Bay is located on the North shore of Lake Superior east of Thunder Bay on Highway 17. The name originates from a series of lake terraces formed as the water level in Lake Superior lowered following the latest ice age.
Terrace Bay originated as a company town in the 1940's when a pulp and paper mill was established here.  The municipality carried out a growth plan in 2010/11 including the downtown revitalization plan, the cultural centre, rebranding based on Lake Superior and the Terrace Bay Lighthouse attraction was built.
While locuming in Terrace Bay or Schreiber, we will ensure you have spare time to experience one of the must see Superior Six attractions!
