Cosmopolitan convenience meets natural beauty with Savage real estate’s many lakes, including Rice Lake and Hanrehan Lake, not to mention the Minnesota River on the edge of town and its tributary, the Credit River.

Savage homes for sale lie on what was once the landing point for Scottish and Irish immigrants in 1800. William Byrne and other settlers constructed a port for boats and named it Hamilton Landing, and as a result the settlement began a long history of growth and prosperity. The town was originally named for this port, but was renamed in the early 1900s after the owner of nationally-renowned race horse Dan Patch, Marion Savage. Over the 20th century, Savage transformed from a port-town to an industrial job center and bedroom community. Highway construction in the 1980s also stimulated population growth, and today Savage boasts nearly 30,000 residents.
