Mining History’s Legacy
Chisholm, a mining community on the shores of Longyear Lake since the late 1800s, commemorates its mining legacy in novel ways.
Entering the city from the west, visitors are greeted by the “Iron Man” statue, an 85-foot iron ore miner memorial. At the east edge of the city lies the Bridge of Peace, proudly flying the flags of countries world-round, representing the ethnic and cultural diversity of the area’s residents.
Hotels, campgrounds, resorts, and fine restaurants are all found in the Chisholm area. Chisholm is also the home of Ironworld Discovery Center, which brings history alive with hands-on exhibits, music, dance, ethnic foods and craft demonstrations.
View the Veteran’s Memorial, saluting & honoring those who have served our great nation. The Minnesota Museum of Mining (located in Chisholm’s Memorial Park), exhibits mining equipment used during the early days of the Mesabi Range, along with a replica of an early mining town.
