In Biwabik, meet a beloved character from the children’s book Honk the Moose. Honk’s statue stands in the town square, and copies of the book, written by former Biwabik schoolteacher Phil Stong, are available locally. The book, which was first published in the 1930s, is based on a true story, and earned the author a runner-up title for the Newbery Medal.
Another site you won’t want to miss – and you’d have a hard time missing it even if you tried! – is the world’s largest hockey stick in Eveleth. Measuring 107 feet, the stick is aimed at a giant puck, and makes a great backgound for a snapshot whether you’re a hockey fan or not.
