This monument to the miners of the entire iron range stands tall near the western edge of Chisholm, MN across from Iron World. It is huge and cannot be missed as you travel through this area.

Yes, it sure is huge. Enjoyed seeing this massive statue along our way through Chisholm. We would have liked to had time to see the MN Discovery Center too. The Iron Man was good itself, but would have liked to seen more information about him on site. I wonder what possessed them to move it in front of McDonald's. We actually went to the Center to ask where it was. Amazingly, didn't see it on the way in. But wasn't looking there! Proves the mind sees what it's focused on.

Driving by we had a chuckle about another giant roadside icon. But when we stopped and read the plaques... took a closer look at the statue ... and thought about it ... we were impressed and in awe of the men (past and present) who worked Minnesota's Iron Range. And then we took a drive through Chisholm ... a nice little town.

It's worth a quick stop.Despite its size, the facial features are clear and evocative. There's a plaque describing miners' experiences.

The 3rd tallest free-standing statue in the US - and it's up in the Minnesota Iron Range. One of their best-kept secrets! A very nice tribute to the people that mine iron-ore to make steel for the rest of the world. The plaque could have given a bit more info - we found out additional history of the statue from the Minnesota Discovery Center (just across the highway).
