It's just a big statue next to a highway with a parking lot. Not particularly attractive. There's a McDonald's across the street.

The sign is a little outdated as it is now the fourth tallest free standing monument, but it is still as stunning and huge as I remember as a child. The ground are well kept and we easily found our way with all the directional signage. Perfect place to stop, stretch, and enjoy the monument to local Iron Range history.

After a full day in Ely, we made our way back towards Grand Rapids, and stopped off at Chisholm, at the Ironman Statue. It was built in memory of all the miners and their contribution to the construction of America, as well as their efforts towards the struggles of the World Wars. The statues is quite a sight to behold,... More

It is a majestic statue. There is a parking lot there with good access. The plaque there tells the story of the miners. It was very interesting. I use to work in the mines near therer.

This impressive 81 foot or some say 3 story high statue is hard to miss, just be sure you don't. It is a wonderful tribute to the iron miners of northern Minnesota, for those who died and for those who worked very hard in a very difficult occupation to provide a very important natural resource to our country.

You can't miss this impressive 3-story tall tribute to Minnesorta iron mining. On a hill above the highway, you can't miss it . What an image in the western sun! There is a wonderful poem there about the Iron Man and all who lived and worked in the industry. Written by a Slovenian immigrant's daughter Veda Ponikvar (a legend herself),... More

This is a very large memorial statue. It depicts the rugged men who worked and sometimes gave their lives in the iron mines in Northern Minnesota. He stands alone in the middle of a field.
