    Memorial at Iron World

    "The Emergence of Man Through Steel"

    They toiled with purpose. These miners of ours...Moving tons of iron ore for massive steel towers.

    This devotion to a nation, they adopted as one, makes the heritage of the iron range foremost 'neath the sun.

    The legend lives. They were the "Iron Men" who dug the mines and contributed to the building and expansion of this country, during an industrial age. They helped to provide the iron needed when freedom was threatened.

    Today, as the industrial age ebbs, and the technological age advances, the iron men are honored with a shrine that tells us they will never be forgotten. The magnificent sculpture evokes strength and embodies past history and ensures continued remembrance of the "Iron Men."

    Look at the contentment in the chiseled face, and you will see the soul of all the iron men who ever were.

    This statute, the third largest free-standing memorial in the United States is a lasting tribute to the Mesabi, Vermilion, Cuyuna and Gogebic Ranges' Men of Steel who carved out of a sylvan wilderness the iron ore that made America the industrial giant of the World

    THEY SHALL LIVE FOREVER!
    YES, THE IRON MAN LIVES.

    Looks like an old WPA project. But it is hard to know for sure since the information available about Chisholm on the internet is sketchy at best. One thing I know--it is not on the National Register of Historic Places. In fact only three buildings in all of Chisholm made that venerable list. I have photos of none of them but they are: Saint Peter and Paul Ukranian Church (530 Central Ave.), Bruce Mine Headframe (Hwy 169 outside of town), and Pyrinto's Boarding House (111 Central Ave.)

    As John Lee Hooker, the old bluesman, would say: "Mr. Bartender. One bourbon, one scotch, one beer." Or as Tom the cat might say, "If you can't beat 'em, join 'em."

    Favorite thing: According to Chisholm's Chamber of Commerce there are presently 108 flags on the Bridge of Peace with another 19 to be added in the near future which will total 127 flags -- one for every free nation. The flags line the Longyear Bridge which is a causeway across Longyear Lake.
