Cities

The Iron Range contains several smaller cities. Some of the more significant communities in the region include

  • Chisholm (pop. 4,960) lies near the center of Mesabi Range. It is the home of Ironworld Discovery Center, the Minnesota Museum of Mining, and the Iron Range Research Center. Archibald "Moonlight" Graham, subject of the motion picture "Field of Dreams" (partially filmed there) settled in Chisholm.
  • Crosby (pop. 2,299) is an old mining boomtown on the southwestern edge of the Iron Range, home of the Crosby-Ironton Rangers.
  • Duluth (pop. 86,918) is the birthplace of Bob Dylan. Once, during the early 20th century, it had the most millionaires per capita in the USA. The port of Duluth allows for the iron ore to be easily shipped through the Great Lakes system. Recently tourism has become more prominent in the local economy. While technically not a mining town, it's prominence as a major shipping port for the Iron Range warrants its mention here.
  • Ely (pop. 3,724), in the Vermillion Range, is perhaps best known as the most popular entry point for the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.
  • Eveleth (pop. 3,865) briefly entered the news in 2002 when U.S. Senator Paul Wellstone and seven others died in a plane crash 2 miles away from the municipal airport. It was also the site of the conflict that resulted in the Supreme Court case Jenson v. Eveleth Taconite Co. and the semi-documentary film North Country. It is also home of the United States Hockey Hall of Fame.
  • Grand Rapids (pop. 7,764) is named for the local rapids in the Mississippi River, which was the uppermost limit of practical steamboat travel during the late 1800s. Today, those rapids are hidden underneath the dam of the Blandin Paper Mill, which has its papermaking facilities in downtown Grand Rapids. To the proximate north and northeast of the city are the iron mines, which are declining in importance today. The current economy has a large tourist footing, with many local resorts, golf courses, and excellent regional hunting and fishing. Grand Rapids is famous as the birthplace of entertainer Judy Garland.
  • Hibbing (pop. 17,071) is the former boyhood home of Bob Dylan, basketball great Kevin McHale and the location of the Hull-Rust Mine, which has the largest iron-ore pit in the world. Hibbing is also the birthplace of Roger Maris.
  • Two Harbors(pop. 3,613) is the county seat of Lake County, Minnesota along the shore of Lake Superior. The town was historically an important port for loading and shipping iron ore from the Range. However, like Duluth, Two Harbors is not itself a mining town.
  • Virginia (pop. 9,157) is the major retail shopping center of the northern part of the Iron Range, and has the Thunderbird Mall.

Temperatures below -40 °F/°C occur somewhere in the region during most winters. For example, statistics from the Midwestern Regional Climate Center climate summaries[1], record that Virginia has a mean annual temperature of 38 °F, with an average January low temperature of -6.2 °F (about -21 °C) and July high of 77.4 °F (25 °C).
