About Lent Township

Lent Township is a small, independent community nestled along the western edge of Chisago County, in east central Minnesota. Lent Township prides itself on maintaining its rural character while planning for quality development, making it a truly desirable place to live, play, work, and raise a family. In 2008, the words “Community Comes Naturally” were chosen as the most appropriate description of Lent Township’s most valued assets – the local resident’s caring attitude and the abundant natural resources that make our community stand out.
